Win 7 Installation Question

Hey guys, me again! :]

Refer to the Image above. When I get to this part of the Windows 7 installation, I will have 3 partitions (instead of the one unallocated space as shown above). I will have one for data, one for a recovery partition, and one for my current OS: Vista.

My question is, what would be better, to delete the Vista partition and create a new one, or to simply format the partition?

Okay then. Thank you! +REP for the reply.

However, in terms of a "cleaner" partition, creating a new one would be better I suppose? Because I want to install 7 on the better partition, but if they're equally the same, I would just format then.

Technically, it doesn't matter as the new partition has to be formatted upon creation anyway.
Cheers!

Why would you use a 20 G hard drive when a 500 G costs less than your monthly cable bill?

It's not my screenshot. I think that screen is taken with a virtual machine having a 20 GB space.
