Just ran the upgrade advisory wiz, and it states that my onboard High Point raid controller card (HPT3xx) is not compatible with windows vista. So I wrote the the manufacturer and they replied with:
We no longer develop for the individual HPT3x controllers.
You can try using the RR100 drivers (this card uses a similar controller), but we cannot guarantee it will work with your hardware.

Im wondering if I should try it with their drivers for the RR100 (States vista Beta), or if I should wait till vista supports it... The only problem I forsee is that since they "No longer develop for the individual HPT3x controllers", is that I will never be able to upgrade unless I get a PCI raid controller card that is supported. This brings up the other problem, I dont have any more available PCI slots. Between a vent fan, Audigy 2, network card, and usb card i have no room!
Should I try a clean install on the drive I have XP on and leave the XP installation there, that way I could test the drivers and see if they work, or will vista mess up my xp install (as I have heard from some other forum posters).
