Windows 7: W7 hanging at splash screen

Here it is. This is taken booting from the SSD (C: Fast) that caused all the issues. Note its low on free space but I can free up 10gig once I get it optimised and after I download all the windows updates again.

Actually another question - I think the install backed up the existing windows files, is it possible to run the windows updates from backed up files rather than downloading again?

Physically disconnect D:, then test to see that the PC reboots.

Yes boots no worries at all and super fast. Plus theres 34 gig of backed up data from previous windows install on the drive which I guess a lot of can eventually be deleted creating a lot more space. Be good if I could aboid having to download all the windows updates again tho :-)

Unfortunately, you will have to download them at some point...bite the bullet on that, and get it done.

You can delete the old installation on the HDD.

thx again...

So is it not possible to somehow get all the previously installed windows updates from 34 gig of files that the new instal put in a folder called old windows?

Also, how do I seperately uninstall the windows 7 install on the HDD when Im booted from the SSD?

And finally, is it safe to just go ahead and delete the 34 gig "old windows" saved files if I cant use them?

I don't know of a way to get the updates off the old install unfortunately.

Just delete the old installation on the HDD, same with Windows.old if it doesn't have any files you need any more.

OK thanks. When I try to delete the HDD windows folder it says I need permission from 'trusted installer'?

how do I delete all the old windows files? I keep getting "requires permission from 'trusted installer' if I try to delete the files that were saved by the reinstall on both the HDD and SSD? It wont even let me move them? I only have the one user account and it set up as administrator.

Hi Golden, thanks again for all your help which helped me get my system up and running.

I did have one more question to help with housekeeping. I want to remove the now unnecessary windows 7 instal on my HDD (I am booting from SSD). But the system wont allow me to do this, indicating that I require 'trusted installer" permission. Is there any easy workaround for this? Its not a biggie though I can just leave it there as long as having the windows installed twice on seperate drives is not likely to ever cause issues in your knowledgeable opinion?

Cheers
