So Mike, can you confirm that it would be possible to use this to keep MCE on one partition and install vista (when I get my upgrade from dell) on another partition using the methods on your website?

No I cant as I havnt done it;-) But take a google and it seems others have.

I think the trick is to get everthing set up and then instal Vista, the problems seem to be when Vista is already installed and you try to set up a dual boot and instal XP, vista gets pushy then.

just remember that you can't dual boot with OEM editions (or at least the 2nd O/S to be installed can't be an OEM edition)

I use both Disk Director and True Image a lot and highly recommend them. Great deal!

With both OS's on seperate partitions and if ness using a boot manager they shouldnt even know the other is there, though I have yet to try it ;-)

You could always run Xp inside Vista with Virtual PC which has just become Vista compatable.

I was about to suggest the same thing, though I'd personally do it the other way round to start with (run a virtual version of Vista in XP). Virtual PC is free but many say that it's a lot slow that the competitors. I use Parallels Workstation and that seems very fast. I use it to test web sites in fresh installations of Windows 95/98/2000 etc.
