Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD


You don't have a System Reserved partition to be concerned with.
can you please explain: That's it, now remove the PWBD from the ODD and at the upper left corner at "General" click "Exit" to close the Partition Wizard program and restart Windows.
This is the way to close the Partition Wizard program and to start Windows.

I believe you have to boot the Partition Wizard CD you create by burning an ISO to a CD of the file you download from this link below, I don't think it can be done from within Windows.

Is Win XP on partition 1 or 2?

That looks very good, well done; one last step, in the current Windows 7 disk management mark the C: partition as Active before you start the installation process; follow Option One steps #1 & #2 to mark the C: partition active then boot the Windows 7 installation disk and do a clean install to complete the process.

See this tutorial at the link below.

I made an error and I edited the posts above, you do not have to step #3 at all, just start the install.

But it won't hurt anything if you do, just a wasted step; sorry.
