    Depends on what you mean by "remove data from old vista" . Are you referring to the OS, or all the personal files & programs you have installed ?

    And exactly what is old and new vista ? Are you reinstalling the same OS, or upgrading to, a different version?
  2. 1. Click on Start; In the Start Search type msconfig and hit Enter.
    2. Click on the Boot tab. Select the operating system which says (no-execute).
    3. Delete it and click on apply and save.

    This will show you what you have on your PC, the folders with the most space will be on top.
