It was at the end of 2011 when Windows 8 was released for the first time as developer preview version. I installed it on my PC with Windows 7 side by side. Most of the people didn't like it. But I was very impressed just after using it for few hours.
Then I decided to remove Windows 7 to continue with Windows 8. Windows 7 was installed on Drive C and Windows 8 was on D. To delete Windows 7 I booted from Windows 8. And tried to format C Drive.
But drive C was not formatted! Because Windows files were very much protected. They can't be formatted until you re-install your windows. What should you do now? How will you remove the OS that you don't wanna use?
Let's find how to solve this problem.
- Open System Configuration. (Hint: Start + R > msconfig > enter)
- Select the Boot Tab.
- Choose the Operating System you wanna remove.
- Now hit the Delete button.
- Open My Computer. Format the drive where removed Operating System was installed. That's it.
Don't try to remove the OS on which your PC is currently running! I mean if you wanna remove Windows 7 then start PC by Windows 8. Because you can't cut the tree on which you're climbing! :)
