How does a full Vista install deal with pre-installed programs?

By zappattazz ·
I've got MS Vista Business on order with a new hard drive. It's replacing an existing Windows XP drive which stop responding. Apps were always installed on seperate drive.

With the installation of the new Vista drive as the boot drive, will Vista automatically "link" to programs and data on a physically seperate NTFS drive?

in an upgrade path , those that are not compatible with vista are disabled. for a clean install path, applications on another drive or partition will have to be reinstalled, just as you would for XP.
