Last response: in Windows Vista

I just install vista 64 to my xp partition drive. During the vista 64 installation, I deleted, and clicked new and format the xp partition. Which is what I want, no more xp. After finished installing vista 64, I noticed vista 64 shrink the xp os. How can I do a true clean installation using vista disk without using other software? Also, why my screen still showing the Earlier Version of Windows when I deleted my xp partition drive? Please Help! Thanks!

(1) Create a bootable disc - CD, Floppy, thumb drive, whatever
(2) Boot to a C prompt
(3) Type C:\>format C:
(4) Go have lunch
(5) install your new OS on your freshly reformatted drive
