Hi,

I have just ordered the Windows Vista Beta2 DVD from M$ I was just wondering if it back ups windows XP MCE cos if I dosent work properly is it easy to undo the install, I remember windows 98 Upgrade did it but does windows Vista, if it dosent dosnt matter my Dell has a backup of Windows XP in a seperate hidden partitions.

22 gig is enough if you just want to play with Vista. I've got it running comfortably on a 20gb partition (with about 10gb to spare).

Out of interest, why beta 2? The latest build 5536 is about 90 times better :D
