I need to know how to prep my third HD so that when I install Vista to that drive <br />
I don't lose info or format. Partition with Partition magic and then what?

well id make a partition that is empty of course.. becuase vista will ussaly try to format when it installs.. unless they have changed that option with the last few public releases.. but basicly just give it its own place to install with nothing on the partition and youll be all good

<div style="font-style:italic;">Simply when in the Vista setup you will want to create another new partition. When it asks you which partition to install upon select the newly made one you created earlier.</div>

I don't know about other Vista Builds, but RC1 5600 does not have an option to create partitions. Format and delete yes, create, no.<br><br>
I ended up partitioning my disk with an XP disc and formatted and installed Vista afterward.
