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 Windows 7 partition, so make sure in Disk Mgmt and then you can just delete Win8 partition.

If not post back the requested screenshot.
