Cool Easy BCD

I used Easy BCD to dual boot Vista 64 (Primary OS) and add XP. Now I need to do the reverse, remove XP , and use that space to add a second new install of Vista 64. (I don't want to lose the original) Is that possible?

I'd like to do this as the orig install of vista 64 has gone flaky; MS tech support has sent me in a circle but did not resolve the problem (lost Control Panel and no access to printer and can't reinstall it).

Maybe this can be done with Easy BCD, but I can't figure out how to do it.

Technically you are only suppose to have the one copy of an operating system to a single computer. In reality you can copy the operating system to the drive again so long as you plan on deleting the existing copy after you transfer the data to the new copy....follow the directions the same as when you installed XP just change the name to vista and you should be fine in doing what you are trying to do.
