Windows 7: removing Vista and Windows 7 from a multi boot

If Win7 came on the PC then you can use the installer provided in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to the other HD with the Product Key on COA sticker.

Unplug all other HD's during the reinstall.

Stick with the steps in the blue link to get and keep a perfect install.

W7 64bit

Thanks gregrocker.

For the time being I am not intending to reinstall the Vista and W7 programs. I have disks for them .

When I do I will put them in VirtualBox as virtual PCs.

I will now mark this as solved
