i have a toshiba a350 laptop. I have bought 64-bit windows 7 premium. But the problem with my university is that their internet does not support 64-bit. So instead of buying a windows 7 32-bit, i have a recovery disk from this toshiba computer that i'm using which has windows vista premium both 32 and 64 bit. So i want to create two partition so i can boot in windows vista 32 bit and windows 7 64 bit and making the windows 7 my deafult operating system.
I have followed everything on this tutorial. Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and Vista
So everything was good, i've put in the partition and stuf.
when it comes to putting the disk in the cd/dvd drive, it starts up normally.
There are a few thigns i have to click on in the toshiba recovery disk.
at first, i chose toshiba recovery wizard, then windows vista 32-bit version.
Then it ask to either
recover factory default software or erase the harddisk, so its obvious that i choose recovery to factory default software.
Then after that it asks
Recover to out of box state
Recover without changing harddrive partitions
recover to a custom size partition
Since i have already made a partition i chose recover without changing harddrive partitions. So i then click next but my problem is that it says this after
'The first partition will be deleted and you will loose all data on partition'
This statement shows whether i choose any of the 3 above.
I don't want to go on further since it might delete this windows 7 O/S that i have right now.
What do you think? should i wait and see what 'recover without changing harddrive partitions' does?
Any one else have experience with this?
