Postby dragonle_2000 » Tue Dec 21, 2010 2:57 pm

hi guys, it been awhile since i come here for help. i had dual boot os in one hd with two different partition the first os is xp pro 32 and the second one is win7 ultimate 64. my question is can i remove the xp and keep the 7 for my primary os, even though i installed the xp first and used the easeus partition software to created a second partition for the 7 so how do i remove the xp and still make 7 bootable as a prinary os.

thanks guys

third post instructions to be done after booting into 7 and deleting the xp volume in disk management, then extendng the 7 volume to the beginning of the disk (if that is possible).
