You may not need to format your currently installed Win7HPx86 to be able to dual boot it with Win7ULTx64. If you like, post back with a screenshot
showing the full layout of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) window to see what your options may be.
Is this really true?????
WIN7HP compared to Windows 7 ULTIMATE
- Volume boot sector is the same
- BOOTMGR is the same
- BCD is the same structure
From there it can load Windows 7 x86 (all versions), Windows 7 x64 (all versions), vista, winxp, other bootloaders etc. Even VHD!
But win7HP cannot start if loaded from VHD
Ulitimate can, so I think it should work.
