Yes, you can do this from within Windows 7.

That's why I posted the link to the home version, so it could be installed to Windows 7 and not booted; I just posted the tutorial so you could get an idea of its use.

Hello again.



You're welcome and I'm glad you have found solutions to the issue.

If I may, in future when you find a tutorial you want to follow, don't start at the beginning doing the steps before you completely read through the entire tutorial and have complete understanding of the entire process before you start.

If you have further questions, we're always here to help, just keep in touch.

Last two question
How would I go about changing the drive letter? Windows 7 is on D I want to change the letter to C everytime I try to though it says something about the parameter.

Also how much space should I leave for the Recovery Drive?

Vokerain,

No need to change it. When you boot into Windows 7, it will have the C: letter then.

By default, whatever OS you boot into will have the C: letter.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

That did not happen. I had deleted the partition Windows Vista was on did a Wipe Clean of it restarted my computer and then in the boot menu it still shows Windows Vista is there but in the Disk Management it is now. What should I do?

Are you booting into Windows 7?

If you also have a Windows 7 entry in the Windows Boot Manager, then the tutorial below will show you how to remove the Windows Vista entry while you have booted into Windows 7.

Okay. Now there is only one entry Windows 7 in the Boot Menu, but the drive letter for Windows 7 is still D: not C: (which it should be on default?)

While in Windows 7, please post a screenshot of your Disk Management window to see how it's layed out in it.
