WHS Installation ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all;

    I attempted to install WHS on my system which already has Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows 7 in a dual boot. I have 2 SATA drives with each OS on it's own drive.

    During the WHS installation, I got to a point where it said this.

     It’s New!

    So, in a sudden panic, I stopped the installation.

    My question is, if I had continued with the installation, would it in fact have deleted my OS's off both drives or would I have been able to install it on another partition?


    Thank you all for any and all help

  • Yes, a new installation will format every drive connected, assuming that it finds the drives. ;)
