In error from a brand new hard drive (and build), I installed the 32-bit version of windows 7 onto my SSD. Upon the product key screen was when I noticed the issue. I input my product key, got windows loaded and then booted from the 64-bit CD instead.
Here I chose the custom install feature and went to overwrite my old partition from the 32-bit version but it would not let me. I tried deleting it as well and I could not. I've since loaded 64-bit windows but I do notice that approximately 8Gb is down on my SSD.
So at this point, I think I may have 2 options but I'm not sure how to go about either:
1) Format the SSD completely so it is in a state like it came out of the box.
2) Delete the old partition and gain 8Gb of space on the SSD while using 64-bit windows.
I would almost prefer option #1 if I had to choose.
Thanks in advance.
