You can get a larger hard drive and copy the data from the old hard drive.

The published minimum disk space for Windows 7 is a 20 GB hard disk with 15 GB available. You will need additional space for applications and their data. Be aware that this is a minimum, more is recommended.

Install Windows Vista on a 6 GB hard disk? No way.
To install Vista you need a larger hard disk. There is no way around that.

As your computer has only a 6 GB hard disk it is likely very old. As such it will be very slow with Vista, assuming it has the other requirements to run it at all.

Simple answer, no. If you look at the minimum spec for Vista HERE you'll see what you need.

As Wizard says, install Vista on a new large drive, & if it is a desktop computer then you can add the old drive as a slave and access your data from there. Alternatively copy everything you want to save onto a DVD.
