Dual boot GPT/MBR back to Windows 7 only ?
I tried, for fun, to make my first hackintosh with OSX and Windows 7 dualbooting from my SSD. It was fun, but now i used Windows 7 and don't care anymore about OSX, i want to drop it.
Actual situation on SSD :
1 - EFI partition 200MB
2 - OSX 55GB
3 - not allocated space 128MB, probably MSR in fact
4 - Windows 7 x64
Everything is bootloaded with Chimera.
I first thought it was UEFI Windows 7 boot, but not. It is MBR : "winload.exe". And GPT disk, of course.
When i try to use space from deleted OSX partition, the MSR (un-allocated space) is merged with deleted OSX space. And so, no more boot. A chance, i've restored a full backup
Best way to keep my Windows 7 and deleting OSX part ?
Converting GPT to MBR ?
Removing all, empty EFI 200 MB and empty MSR 128MB, recovering Windows 7 partition on the 3rd part and doing a "repair boot" ?
Any suggestion is welcome,and i can try a lot with a full offline backup
