How to delete OS Partition on my Hard Drive

Hello,

I have Vista 64-bit operating system on my Acer laptop. I installed Windows 7 in the second system, to verify the compatibility of the programs I use vista. I am now fully satisfied with W7, How can I do to uninstall vista properly?

Can I just format the vista partition while using W7?
Should I then change the boot startup to avoid having to make the choice of the system?

Thanks.

  • Yes, you can just format your Vista partition when you're using Windows 7. Just go to Windows Explorer, right click on the vista partition, and format it.
  • After that, you must remove Windows Vista from the boot up manager or else every time you turn on your computer you will go to the OS choosing screen, which is pointless because if you choose to boot with Vista, it would not work.
  • To remove your Windows Vista from your system, while using Windows 7, go to Start, type "msconfig". Go to BOOT tab.
  • You will see the list of installed OSes on your system, which, in this case will be Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
  • Just choose Windows Vista from the list and click the DELETE button.
