I think my problem is similar to the one outlined in this thread : Won't let me delete my old partition.
But I want to make sure before I go and start messing with things...
Last week my vista64 installation became inoperable (due to what I suspect is an ongoing ram issue)
I ended up purchasing a new HD and a copy of Windows 7 to install on, boot and hopefully be able to recover all my old files. This worked perfectly. However I am now unable to reformat one of my old harddrives (the one with the old vista install on it)
I have already removed my old vista install from the boot menu using msconfig.
Ive attached a screenshot of what my disk management interface looks like below.
C: is my new Windows 7 installation
E: is my old Vista C:
If I enable hidden files I can see the boot files on the E drive and NOT on my new C drive...
As this is a fair bit over my head I want to make sure what I am doing is correct - I can follow directions of what to do. But like I said I want to make sure I'm not going to screw everything up in the process.
