If you burn to disk and enable the booting thingy in it (you can do it via
Nero), and install from boot - you can customise it much better, partitions
and the lot :o)

If you understood all of that Art, you are really good. Windows Vista's
setup has been simplified, the setup routine is very easy, if you have burnt
the ISO image to a blank DVD, you can simply start the installation from
within Windows XP or by booting from the DVD (make sure your boot drive is
set to your DVD drive winthin the BIOS), type in your product key, accept
the license agreement, choose Custom Upgrade > select the dedicated
partition you created for Vista (F:), and click next and setup will finish
the rest. Your computer will restart a couple times.

Also, make sure the minimum hard disk space you have free is at least 15
GBs, 500 MBs on the C: drive if you launch setup from within XP. I noticed
that the upgrade advisor did not take into account other partitions that
might be on the computer, only the route drive, so thats something to think
about, if it failed your computer. Its best you do a manual check to make
you can run Vista.

Also, here is some additional information from R.C. White about booting from
the disk and changes that setup will apply:
"Hi, Andre.

You might want to remind Jeff that if he launches Vista Setup from within
WinXP, Vista will "inherit" the drive letters he is using in WinXP. (He can
set those in WinXP's Disk Management if he hasn't already.)

If he boots from the DVD to run Setup, then Vista will probably assign the
letter C: to the volume where he says to install Vista. Maybe that's what
he wants, but many users have been confused by the fact that Vista is now on
C: and what they've always known as C: is now D: - or something else - but
only when they are running Vista, not when they are running WinXP. All this
doesn't confuse the computer, but it discombobulates some humans!

RC"

Sometimes if you want to help, its worth extra effort to figure out the
question. I had a similar issue, Upgrade Advisor was only recognizing C:
none of other partitions with enough free space to install Vista.

They should help us help them. It's not like we're being paid to help them.
