I have the 7 install disc but need to take vista off first.

If the Win 7 is a full install then just format the 'Vista' disk and proceed with a new installation. A full format will delete any old data and remove all old partitions.

I use 'Minitool Partition' software - it's free and can be put onto a bootable DVD/CD for easy use.

I would expect the win 7 install to simply overwrite the Vista without having to get rid of it first.

I would have done Nigel but it's got Vista business on it and I want to install 7 home premium. Apparently the two are incompatible and won't overwrite.

There are some videos on youtube that might help. I have only searched them and haven't watched any, but they seem as though they may be of help.
