Windows 7: gparted trouble I think

27 Mar 2014   #11


Thanks for your responses. I took a once over in the xp boot and it looks just as before the re-partition.
I'm concerned about the file reporting the is made in win7 boot though. Most of the files I don't recognize.

My thought is that win7 not seeing what is there will cause a lot of trouble down the line.

New thought. I am not using win7's Switch between windows; instead I use gag. If I were to figure out how to enable this and stop using gag will I fix.the problem?

When you installed Win7 to its partition it should have configured a Dual Boot menu with XP. Did it not?

I think what I would do is back up your files, follow these steps to do a Clean Install Windows 7
using the Drive Options pictured in Steps 7/8 to delete all partitions first. You should have used those Drive Options to make your partitions in the first place.

Until then, if you want your files kept on the partition between XP and Win7, try deleting it in Disk Mgmt, then create and Format it again. Partition or Volume - Delete
Partition or Volume - Create New
