    How to install Vista without losing my data ?

    Windows unbootable, I discovered that the partition (: C) on which Vista was installed became unusable. I therefore wish to reinstall Vista on the partition containing my personal datas (: D).
    Is it possible to install Vista on that partition (: D) but I lose the documents that are above and which are absolutely essential for my job?

    Not really because to install an operating system, it normally format the hard disk where you want to install.

    Except that the partition of your primary hard disk not starting, just trying to format it with the installation CD of Windows Vista.

    If you want to install on your hard drive containing your data, I advise you to download a linux distribution running live CD and run the ... Then, simply copy your data elsewhere, style on a USB key.

    If you are using a recovery DVD or CD then it will wipe all your files off the drive and reinstall Windows just like it was when you bought the computer. A normal Vista DVD will let you do a repair install. The upgrade DVD does not have this feature so you will need a retail DVD.

    I would take a look at this website on how to repair without losing any data.
