Windows 7: From DualBoot 7 & 10 to 10

From DualBoot 7 & 10 to 10

Hi guys,

I really love Win 7 but it seems like it's time to finally update. I've dual booted Win 10 for a few days (this caused many problems which I was able to solve thankfully) and I think I'm going upgrade my Win 7 to Win 10 now.

Only issue is that I've already created partitions for the dual boot. How do I undo all of that so that I only have one OS on my hard drive?

Hi,
Easiest way is to use the win-10 media creation tool using win-10
Disconnect the data disk with all of your personal files...
Then clean install 10 and save nothing with the media creation tools iso.

Clean install 10 on the 119 GB drive, use your W7 key to activate 10.

Unplug the other drive before you proceed, you can hook it back up after you`ve done your install, to do whatever you want to it.

You can just delete the W10 install on the 111 GB drive, then extend the new volume space.

Then save your pennies to get a larger data drive. 111 GB is way too small.
