Thread Starter 
nobody answered my last question,i'm going to reinstall.
but the OS is in the C: drive and all the documents/imges/music is in the Z: drive.
so when i insert the vista DVD to reinstall and delete the old OS will it delete the documents/music/images folders in the Z: drive? or will it just format the C drive and leave the Z drive alone?
please somebody answer....it's URGENT!

If your just reinstalling to C: you should be fine.On my notebook I do a fresh install to C: while leaving D: intact/alone.

yep. You'll see the partitions show when you install. Select C:, and it'll only use that one.

DO NOT re-partition the drive!
