Windows 7: Changing system partition

I thought that was the tool MS offered for those who downloaded just the install files, and needed to turn them into the .iso file. I thought it pulled in those files and gave you a choice to output to .iso or to a USB drive.

Hello xDinichx.



If you want to delete XP and just run Windows 7?

You will need to mark the D: as "Active" in disk management as I have E:, right click and select "Mark as Active" then you will need to run at least 3 separate startup repairs with re-starts between the repairs; have a look at the tutorial at the link below. Then you can delete XP if you want.

Those files would need to be Copyed & pasted over first.

MS made good on not providing ISO downloads here: Microsoft Fixes Windows 7 Student Edition Upgrade Problems

You can unlock all versions in the ISO using this tool: http://lifehacker.com/5438005/eicfg-...windows-7-disc

However to recover the MBR into Windows 7 so you can start it without XP, you only need a Repair CD: System Repair Disc - Create

The procedure is to mark Windows 7 Active from XP disk management, or using DISKPART from the DVD Repair console or Repair CD: Partition - Mark as Active

Next power down to unplug XP HD, change its cable to or set Windows 7 HD as first HD to boot in BIOS setup (after DVD drive), Boot the DVD Repair console or Repair CD, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Windows 7 starts.
