I was installing windows 7 on a computer that had windows XP installed.
I accidentally installed Windows 7 on a different partition (assumed the largest was the one that had XP on it!) so now issues are arising. Note: there is only 1 physical hard drive.
I found a similar thread detailing a solution here: Changing Win7 System/Boot Partition without Reinstall
However, while my situation is nearly identical, the problem is that my C: drive is marked as logical while my F: drive is the primary and I haven't found a way to change that.
C: (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, logical)
F: (System, Active, Primary Partition)
I've been able to make F: inactive, but that doesn't matter because I'm still unable to make C: active since it's logical. Ideally I'd like to have C be everything and F: just be a logical drive, or simply wipe it out and have a single partition.
thank you for any help!
edit: I dl'd a program to try and do what windows wouldn't let me do... now after a few window startup repairs using the Windows 7 install disk I still can't boot so may just have to reinstall the OS. With that in mind... do I install it over the Windows 7 partition or the XP partition for easiest resolution of this matter?
