Longhorn Install Help Needed

Hey,

I just downloaded Longhorn legit via MSDN and want to install it but on both of my drives, I didn't create separate partitions so PartitionMagic won't be of any assistance in terms of creating a new drive just for Longhorn. Do I either install Longhorn from a bootable CD and then select my secondary drive (on my first I have XP and don't want to mess that up) or do I open up my computer and switch the jumpers so I make my secondary drive my "C" drive and then I won't have to worry about screwing up XP or dual booting which I don't want. I just wanna test out Longhorn for a little while then forget about it. It won't be a problem to install Longhorn to a drive that already has files on it right?

Thanks,
TheDream

if you choose to install longhorn on the second drive during setup, it will install fine (and it will format it, so you don't have to worry about whether or not there are files on it)...

but if you have the first drive hooked up, it WILL set up a dual boot situation. if you don't want that, remove the first drive and set the second drive to master.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
