Why did you not use the Recovery Partition to reinstall?
I didn't really know about that.

However, i figured out how to reset my lost admin password in my old OS.
But, i can't access it as it shows a blue screen.
Is there a way i can delete windows 7 from the windows repair/install disk?

I think the existence of two Oses is making my main Os to how be a blue screen when i boot it.

Yes. If you mean get rid of the entire partition on which Windows 7 resides.

Diskpart command accessed by shift F10 at the language screen of the install disk.

If you post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map and listings, we can give you the exact steps to do what you want. Use the Snipping Tool in Start Menu. Screen Shots

You can delete the old Win7 now in Disk Management, then Resize Win7 into the deleted space using free Partition Wizard bootable CD.

To attempt to repair the old Win7, On the newly installed Win7 generate a System Repair Disc - Create

Boot into it and see if it shows the old installation, highlight it, use Recovery Tools to run Startup Repair repeatedly.

If this fails boot back into Recovery Tools Command Line to mark old Win7 partition Active: Partition - Mark as Active. Then run up to 3 separate Startup Repairs to try to boot the old Win7.

Once it boots you can delete the new Win7.
