Windows 7: removing partitions...

removing partitions...

I installed windows 8 dev preview on the second partition I created. Since there is no uninstall, if I remove the partition would it mess with the boot and ruin my windows 7 which is on C drive?

Hello DFS,

While in Windows 7, you can delete the Windows 8 partition to remove Windows 8 since Windows 7 was installed first. The tutorial below can help show more on this. Afterwards, you could extend Windows 7 back into the deleted "unallocated" partition.
