never mind wasnt thinking.

use daemon( i think that is how you spell it) tools if you dont have dvd drive

This is exactly what I said. Although I recommended Alcohol as well. Daemon is free and I love it. But I figured you would do a fresh install so Daemon would do you no good on an OS.

Actually Daemon tools allows you to have "virtual Drives".  Up to 4 i think.  Basically you mount a iso image to one of the virtulal drives and then double click the drive icon.  THe virtual drives appear as if they were a reguular drive

yeah. but i wonder how the vista installer likes that. if it will install it out of xp like an upgrade, fine. but if it wants to boot from the dvd created with the image...

it will install on top of xp like a upgrade but you still have to restart becuse it wants to boot from the DVD. you can not mount this image and expect to install it. you have to boot from it at some point.

:iamwithstupid: This is why I modified my post to "never mind I wasnt thinking" I dont think it will work. Once you reboot daemon will be gone so you need the dvd, and if there is a way to make it work buying a blank dvd will probably be better. :haha:

there must be some way to install it w/o a dvd drive

Maybe if you wanted to go to the trouble of making bootable CD's from the dvd, but that would be WAAAYYYY to much work.
