Windows 7: Stop Boot Manager appearing

02 Jul 2010   #11
Malcolm Alberry

Windows 7 Ultimate

Hi Dwarf

Thanks, but I have currently 3 partions on disk 0 from the original install

P1. Backup 4 GB P
P2. current Win7 system 107 GB P
P3. Unallocated 10 GB

I have to select a partition

I can only select P2 as the other 2 state Win7 cannot be installed there

When I tell it to format selecting P2 -> NEXT in Step 8 - it says

'This partition might contain recovery / system files or importent manufacturers information. Any data stored will be lost.

And if I say OK - it revert to screen with the choice to Format again - round and round

Do I need to 'Delete' all partitions first to get a large 'Unallocated space'

Any other ideas please
