Is it applicable to use drive d for dual boot?

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

My Laptop computer is copyright Windows Vista Premium and I am planning to dual boot Windows 2007.

But my drive d is almost full as you have seen image below;


I'm confused because, if I use the drive d as Windows 2007 it maybe conflict and damage the program because drive d is use as Recovery. And the size itself is too small and I’m planning to replace the recovery into other drives to be created.

Is it necessary to replace the Recovery drive to other drives? So that the windows 7 will be place in my drive d.

Any help please?

Thanks for help.

Hi Meagan,

No, It is not applicable and advisable since Drive D is the recovery partition of your drive C. Your best option to have windows 7 installed in your system, is to repartition drive C using drive partitioning software. There are a lot of free drive partitioning software on the internet but I would recommend EASEUS ALL-IN-ONE Partition Manager Software. you can download the program here. Download EaseUS ALL-IN-ONE Partition Manager Software

You can allocate or divide drive C into two drives therefore creating a new extended drive (Note: it's still is one physical drive). Then install windows 7 onto the new drive.

Hope this helps.
