I have installed windows 7 on a different partition without removing windows xp. Now, I am having trouble removing windows xp from my windows 7, ubuntu boot. The problem is when I try to delete the partition, it keeps telling me:
"Delete is not allowed on the current boot, system, pagefile, crashdump or hibernation volume."
Here is my Disk Management:
[ ] Simple Basic [ ] Healthy(Primary Partition) -> Linux
( C: ) Simple Basic NTFS Healthy(Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) -> Windows 7
( D: ) Simple Basic NTFS Healthy(System, Primary Partition) -> xp
( E: ) Simple Basic NTFS Healthy(Logical Drive) -> for data
In boot manager, I only have one boot entry "Windows 7" because I removed windows 7 and ubuntu from it using easybcd (i use grub for all). Even if the Boot is written for Windows 7 in disk management, I don't have bootmgr and boot/ in my Windows 7 partition. It's in winxp partition. EasyBCD keeps giving me error "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The system cannot find the file specified.", so i have to manually refer to the BCD file located in winxp partition.
What should I do to remove windows xp?
