I had it but I hate that it ask me for everything before I disabled the thing but after that it gave me couple of issues. Is it better now than 3 month ago?

Definitely dual boot. You have a 500GB drive - so you can give each OS its own 20-40 gig partition and not even feel it

IDK, I didn't have Vista 3 months ago, I can only assume it's better now.

I was thinking about dual booting vista and xp, but i got lazy and decided it was to much work to put my floppy drive back in the computer to install my raid drivers so i just went with vista. I love it, i could never go back to xp now, i have had zero issues
