Help with change from Multiboot to just win7
Here's what I'd like to do.
I've got vista on my first disk which is a regular hdd.
I installed Windows 7 on a new ssd a month or so ago.
I wanted to get rid of my vista installation since I am no longer using it, and then I wanted to format the vista disk and use it to save all my data on it rather than the SSD.
However, my current problem is how to get "rid" of the vista installation while still being able to boot to Windows 7. I've looked at bcdedit from Windows 7 and it seems that all the boot info is on that vista drive. I unhid OS files, etc., and it does indeed look like they are on the vista disk. I sort of expected this, so I'm not surprised to find out that it is there.
So, here are my questions. What do I need to copy to the SSD, and what do I need to edit to make the SSD bootable? I'm pretty sure I need to go into disk management and set the SSD to be the active system partition, but I also suspect that there is some other stuff I need to copy to the SSD from the Vista disk, and maybe I need to edit the bcd and maybe some other registry info.
Thanks very much with any help!
