Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 on a SSD partition of a 1TB HDD

29 Oct 2012   #21


Upgrade option can never be run from boot. It must be Custom.

What happens if you try Custom install to C?

If given the option delete first two partitions, create new there so it marks SysReserved as Active and doesn't cut it out as boot partition.

Save a Win7 backup image externally if you want a path back.
