Do not use it.

You might be able to resolve the problem like this:

Use another bootable partition manager to simply shrink the partition a little - a couple of gb should do.

(There is one you can download attached to this tutorial Dual Boot using free partitioning software - Vista Forums - you will find it easier to use a ps2 mouse, alternatively, try GParted).

Exit the partition Manager - remove the cd.

Boot the 7 dvd - start the installation process - go to Drive Options (advanced) - extend the partition to it's full size.

Abort the installation.

From the 7 dvd , run startup repair.

Hope it helps

Ok i got this disk running(Why the partition cd is booting but not my windows 7 disk is beyond me)

So it turns out partition manager didn't actually merge the partitions anyay. I still have a 215gb partition with nothing on it. Although i don't know what i should be doing lol. Any tips?

No i have 2. The 80 gb one with windows and a 206gb one which i though i merged but it didn't. However it says that all 206gb is full???? WTH? Should i delete all the partitions and then try to do a clean install(Even though as of now the windows dvd wont boot)

Ok, if you have a working Windows Vista in partition I would be very careful
about trying to install a release candidate (Win 7 RC1). It could render your working system inoperable in which case you would have to use the vendor supplied Restore Cd/DVD if you have one.

If you need this laptop for school I would not run the risk of installing a test operating system unless you had a full hard drive backup. The restore CD/DVD's that come with todays machines only restore your machine to the state it was when you purchased it.

There is a Microsoft Utility you can run that will tell you whether your laptop
can even run Win 7. I would run that first. If you need a link, I'll dig it up

My computer already had windows 7 installed before any of this happened(my friend installed it) Windows 7 was the only Os on my laptop. My drive d was acting up so i tried to merge both partitions into one and thats when everything started happening.

ok, I was under the impression you had Windows Vista installed on first
partition and wanted to install wIN 7 in the second.

So right now, what is your stauts. You have Win 7 installed but can't boot?

If you issue is that you can't boot, do you have another PC to download the Win 7 RC and burn it?

If, do that and reinstall Win 7 and tell it to format your drice
