"I have Windows 2010 on disc" There is no such operating system, there is Microsoft Office 2010, bu it is not an operating system, they are two entirely different products.
You need to reinstall Vista from your recovery or intalation disk. There is no OS on a new drive.
If I have misunderstood what you have done please give details on what you have actually done to install the OS.

If you are just confused and are installing Vista or possibly Windows 7 then: Did you Format the new drive? During the initial install stage, choose 'custom' and 'format/partition', create new partition(s) on the new drive and format them (at least the one you are going to install your OS on (the others if any can be formatted later).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

Office 2010?

Might have selected the wrong installer????

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
