I set up my PC to dual boot to Windows 7 or W8. All working fine until the PC refused to boot up saying there was an error due to removing a large storage device. I had pulled a 32GB USB stick from the machine earlier that day with using safely remove options.
I thought I could repair the boot loader but could not manage this. I had the retail Windows 7 DVD so used that to hopefully repair Windows but managed somehow to install another version of Windows 7.
Result is that after managing to repair my original Windows 7 I now have two versions of Windows 7 intalled on the same partition. (W8 is on a separate partition). I have used EasyBCD to rename the new Windows 7 installation which I now wish to remove from the PC.
I can easily delete using EasyBCD but want to delete the actual installation as well not just the boot option. When I delete using EasyBCD does this delete the second (unwanted Windows 7 installation) or just the option at startup. If only the startup title how do I delete the other unwanted installation. Will a system restore from my wanted Windows 7 installation be sufficient.
