    Allright I don't know where this belongs... XP or Vista?
    XP Cause I am Installing XP but Vista Cause of Vista being a problem... Anyways what ever...

    My mother bought a new computer for my birthday... I told her NO VISTA again, and again... Guess what... She bought Vista... Not the point though I have goten over that...

    I don't want to say I hate Vista so much as I just like XP a lot better... XP is compatable with all my programs, and games... I don't think it doesn't run because of my comp. parts being incompatable because she bought it completly stock... I hope no one is stupid, or evil enough to do something like give me a piece of **** comp.

    Anyways down to business... I want to install XP on my 2nd hard drive and replace the first with it but I can't take my computer apart to take out the first hard drive and replace it with the second... Can't take it apart as in some security ******** that would have me ripe apart my vidoe card, sound card, RAM, etc. to get to the hardrive...

    So I would like to install XP on my Second Hard Drive and COmpletly shut down my first hArd dRive... Any way to do this or any other fixes?

    Also I would like to just throw away the Vista Hard Drive due to the pure evil it carries rather than install XP over it... call it pre-dejavu... Incident when XP came out probably just bad luck... Not the point...
