Chaps, some assistance please.
When installing Windows 7 about a year ago, I plumped for partitioning off my hard drive to keep Windows XP and installing Windows 7 on separate partition.
Recently I added an SSD and have installed Windows 7 on that and now I want to remove the XP partition, reallocate the available space to my Sata Windows 7 install to begin the (long) process of making the SSD the primary and only OS on the machine.
I've copy boot.mgr and the boot folder to my SataWin7 drive and then restarted the computer with the DVD in, selecting repair so I can run command prompt.
Running Diskpart, I deleted the XP partition but for some reason I'm getting an error when I try and make my sata Windows 7 partition the active partition. I've subsequently rebooted and repaired the machine to restore the Win XP partition so I can carry on booting the machine (hence I'm typing now), but can anyone throw light on to what the problem is here?
