I was trying to install Vista onto a spare partition yesterday, and the installer refused to use the partition. I deleted it, formatted it, tried again, no go. Deleted it, made it bigger, repeat, no go. I was using the 3rd partition on the drive (still a primary though) but I was wondering if Vista requires itself to be on the first partition? Any ideas?
(Partition sizes I tried using were 50GB and 90GB)
