Windows 7: I've installed my OS twice, deleted the wrong one, and low on space!

Oops, just saw it. Yes, it was doing that... I think i actually got the correct one deleted, but everything is still on my hard drive...

I may be wrong but I doubt it, you have removed the factory PC option of a Recovery reinstall that was built in to the PC by installing Windows to the factory "Recovery" partition.

Do you have an actual Windows 7 installation DVD, not the recovery disks that came with the PC, unless there was a separate Windows 7 install disk with it.

The only disks I have that came with my computer is a green "Operating System" CD that says
Already installed on your computer
Reinstallation DVD
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

and then i have a gray CD that says
DRIVERS AND UTLIITIES
Already installed on your computer.

Do you still get the dual-boot option screen when the PC is re-booted or does it boot straight to Windows 7? Do that now, restart the PC to find out for sure before we proceede.

Post another snip of disk managemet to see which OS it's booting to, it'll be the one that has "Boot" listed.

That's the "old" install correct, not the "new" one you just did?

This is a brand new picture. I just took it. It is not the same one I sent you the first time.

No I meant the Windows 7 you are using right now is the old install, not the new one.
