sequel to my previous posting on installing vista on a new HDD with the existing license for the preinstalled vista on the unrecoverable HDD. Is it advisable that i install XP home edition and then upgrade to vista using the license for the previous preinstalled vista home premium? I hope this makes sense???

If you use Acronis True Image to clone your old HDD onto the new one it should work as soon as you install it. You shouldn't then need to reactivate the OS.
