I recently purchased a 300GB 7200 rpm drive and ported XP over and now use it as my 'C' drive.
You could try the Sixty four bit windows XP and Windows seven upgrade that way and simply swap out the drive if you didn't like it !
For less that a hundred bucks you could be sure of being able to Quickly recover if there is a problem with the upgrade and you would have a much larger,faster boot drive .
My old drive is only 30GB and serves for my backup.
I also have a portable off line 250GB drive that holds a backup my Music and Picture files .I just power it up when ever I need it .
I find that with the new high density drives being
so inexpensive it's cheaper in the long run to occasionally buy a new drive and port the old 'C' drive data to it and save the old 'C' drive as achieves !
It's much easier to find a old needed file that way.Just swap the 'C' Drive and reboot .Copy the needed file to the the 'D' drive and go back to the original 'C' drive !It sure beats going through a dozen 'CD'S' looking for a file.
Well i like XP better than vista.
mostly because DOS is still in XP.
Back in the days when I worked in town and programmed on a Mini/Mainframe I used an old line editor and had the hardest time moving on to the full screen editor. Mostly because I was so proficient at moving files around with the old editor.
Until finally the system manager removed my old editor and I was forced to spend a day or so leaning the new editor.This editor I now use is my seventh iteration of editors and probably ,hopefully my last .
