@Greg,

he hasn't got a dvd - he has the install files.

It is the enterprise edition - he already has the product key - presumably in a text file on Vista partition.

aka,
Just precisely what did you download?

I'm having trouble understanding.

I just don't believe you performed a monstrous download. An ISO file for Win 7 is not small in and of itself.

A copy of all of the files that would normally be on an exploded Win 7 would be rather large.

You do or you do not have a copy of the file you "downloaded"?

Some vital piece of info is missing.

You say that you downloaded Win 7, yet you haven't been able to tell us what you downloaded other than to say Win 7 Enterprise upgrade. That should have been an ISO file. Something just doesn't fit here.

Originally Student version was offered in an .exe installer until complaints forced Digital River to offer an ISO. I haven't heard of Enterprise being offered as a Student edition, but if it's a school it is certainly a qualifying organization for volume licensing.

If you can browse into the Vista partition through Explorer and find the download it may be able to be converted into an ISO using this tutorial by SIW2 who is here to guide you: Make bootable iso from student d-l

Is this activated by your school or do you have a Volume License Key which is what is used to activate Enterprise?

You can download the ISO and burn to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed, then follow these steps to Clean Install Windows 7, or order it. You should have a disk for reinstalls or repairs.

Sorry it's taken me a while to get back. OK, well if I want to completely remove Windows 7 and just go back to Vista for now how do I remove it or the whole Windows 7 in the partition? I am able to log successfully into Vista. Thanks for all responses!

The better solution is to go to your school bookstore and actually buy Win 7. Through your bookstore, you will get a fantastic price on Win 7 that others can only dream about.

Post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map and listings, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu. We will give you the steps to remove Windows 7.

Did you confirm if the Enterprise Windows 7 version you have will be activated by your school? Can they provide you with an installation DVD or bootable ISO file we can help you burn to DVD?

Be sure to post your disk management snippet in you NEXT post.

Do not include the snippet in a previous post.

We seldom go back thru the old posts.
