Can't remove vista from Hardrive

Recommended Posts

vista came installed on my computer and i put windows 7 on there about a month ago! Well i want to take vista off my other hard drive but it wont let me. Will i have to remove windows 7 1st then remove vista? I have a lot of things on windows 7 and nothing on vista plus my friend is about to show me how to run lunix and i don't want 3 OS on my comp! All i'm trying to do is remove vista with out taking off winodws 7 and losing all my videos and music!?!?

No need for any programs. Boot into Windows 7 and then go to the Start Menu and type in "msconfig" (without the brackets) and press Enter. From there go to the boot tab and you should see Vista in the OS list. Click on Vista and then press the Delete button below. If afterwards you have Windows 7 as an only OS, select it and press the "Set as default" button below. A reboot and all should be fine.

Are you dual booting into Windows 7? In other words, when you boot your PC do you choose which OS to boot into?
