  1. by default it goes to C: drive only ..
    if you want to check it mean try this
    http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windowsvista/ht/chdrlettervista.htm

    when you clicked on disk management it will show list of available drives in right side
    (on status tab you can see """(system)""""" which shows the OS drive,

    or go to windows explore window & brows evert drives you have, you can see folder loke windows, program files like that system files..
  2. i need to install one more OS on the same PC how do i do it?
  3. So you are trying to set up a dual boot system?

  6. Syschat have an excellent tutorial on creating a Vista / Xp dual boot system. I used it myself to create the dual boot with Vista already installed:

  10. Yes, you need to shrink the partition that Vista is installed on. Look at option 3 in this guide.

    You need to do this to create a small partition to install XP onto.

  12. Vista would still be there. This would just set up a dual boot system.
