Hi guys.I have a laptop with Win 7 .I recently installed windows 8 consumer preview in different partition.
I want to remove windows 8, i thought of restoring windows 7 bootloader and deleting the 8 partition .Could someone help me to restore the windows 7 bootloader ,cause when choosing 7 on startup it restarts the whole system which takes twice the time to boot into 7.

The System Active flags should have remained on Win7 partition, so make sure in Disk Mgmt and then you can just delete Win8 partition.

If not post back the requested screenshot.
