Win7 Partition depends on Vista's one

Q: Win7 Partition depends on Vista's one

Hi,

I've instaled Win 7 as a second system next to My Vista (both x64). Now I'm emotionally ready to get rid of Vista for number of reasons. Of course Win7 become fully operational and "personalized" system so I don't wont to reinstal Win7...just remove Vista. But my Win7 needs Vista's partition. In magazine I have following description:
"Vista name" D:
(size)
healthy (System, Active, Primary)

"Win7 name" C:
(size)
healthy (Boot, Pagefile, backup, primary)

How can I move "required stuff" to C: to be able to delete D: partition?

thanks
Muzzy

Preferred Solution: Win7 Partition depends on Vista's one

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Muzzy, welcome to Seven Forums!



Before we make any specific recommendations will you please post a snip/screen-shot of the entire disk management drive map with a full description as to which drive/partition is which, so we can see what you have going on as there may be a fairly simple way to resolve the situation.

In the Windows start menu right click computer and click manage, in the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens click disk management and post a snip of that.

I have an MSI gaming computer running Vista home premium 32bit, I am planning to upgrade to Win7 64bit (I already checked compatibility and its good). My hard drive is in two partitions, one for the OS and one (labeled DATA) where I've installed all my programs and personal files and such. If I wanted to install Win7 over Vista on the OS partition is there any chance the process could corrupt or damage my files on the DATA partition?

Let's say i have 2 partitions, Vista and Win7. If I'm now ready to get rid of my Vista and Install Win7 final release over it (for example), what's the first step I have to do with the Vista partition? do I have to reformat it first? what are the steps on doing a clean install on the vista partition. thanks!

and BTW, I have read that the RTM was released, but some says that it's not the final RTM. so what's the forums conclusion about it? final or not?

A:QUESTION: about installing WIN7 on Vista partition

ill answer your first question: What you can do, to make this as simple as possible, boot from your W7 disc,and when all the partitions are shown, where your Vista install is, format it, then deleter the partition, so you only have 1, then proceed with installation, which will install W7 onto your HDD. And your second Question, i dont know lol.

I have received my free upgrade from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Edition from Dell, and I want to upgrade. I am currently dual-booting (flawlessly) Windows 7 RC and Windows Vista Home Premium. Windows 7 is fast while Vista is a slow behemoth. I have a laptop, and I want to upgrade Vista to 7 while keeping my 7 RC install. My external hard drive is only 160 GB. My users folder in Vista is about 55GB, and that has all the data that I would need. I really want to do a clean upgrade to make the system faster, and to make the install faster as this is my main computer. The problem is, my 160GB hard drive is filled with backups (HUGE) from my other computer, a desktop, and there is not enough room to back up my 55GB Users folder to this external hard drive. My question is: Can I just make a separate partition (maybe 80GB) and move all my "Users" data to that folder and then just do a clean upgrade on the Vista partition? I have read in a few places that it works, but one guy said that this destroyed all his data because the 7 install froze and went awry. Should I do this, or should I just go out and buy another external hard drive and back up to be safe? Thanks.

Hi
As the topic says; after installation of a fresh copy from the original disc win7, my second partition "D" has been renamed itself to the Recovery Partition. You can see it only in the application "Disk Management". I do not have access into it at all. When I click the right mouse button ?help? option appears only . There are very important files to me.
I tried to use EASEUS Partition Master but I'm afraid of losing data.
Please help.

A:[SOLVED] After win7 install, 2nd partition has renamed itself to Recovery Partition

Have you taken the install disc out ? Sounds dumb but the d: partition is generally a reserved partition and indicates your CD-ROM drive, to me it looks like your install disc, the file system is UDF which is universal disc format, you have two recovery partitions on top. Remove the disk, reboot. Then choose a different letter other than D for your recovery partition.. Best to start with z

The fact that the file encryption is UDF, you will not have the ability to modify it, its not NTFS, FAT or FAT32.

Hi friends.

I just encountered a serious issue. I was about to reinstall Win 7. I used a tool in Hiren Boot CD
and formatted c:, and then i accidentally formatted the 125MB partition created by win 7.

my HDD was partitioned as C, D, E, F.

now i can access only C and D, E is shown as RAW file system (I cant open it).
F is shown only is disk management (without a drive letter).

So i believe that all the data is still on the HDD and can be recovered by re-building MFT.
please help me guys.
Thanks in advance

Hello all, I come to you because I have a big problem :

I had my HDD like that :
- system reserved (primary)
- Ubuntu (primary)
- Win7 (primary)
- Win8 (secondary)
- DATA (secondary) (with all my users datas !!)

I used >>Partion Wizard Home Edition<< to manage the partitions.

I decide to delete win8 et Ubuntu partition, So I moved the Win7 partition to the end, next to the DATA's one...

Next with the free space I did with the Ubuntu partition and the old position of the Win7's one, I created a new partition where I installed Debian.

Debian works well (It's from here I write this message), but Win7 has a lot of bug...

Even in safe mode, I have the mouse but a black screen without any things...
And in the normal mode, I got the login screen, but after I have a blue wallpaper with a static mouse... I can't do anythings


Do you have some tips ? I there a way to repare windows ?

Thank's

A:[BUG] moved Win7 partition - Win7 don't boot properly

Hi

Actually it is neither a bug nor an issue created by "Partition Wizard". The partition in which "Windows 7" installed is not supposed to be moved. When you do so, Windows lost the information of from which partition it is booting (at least i think so ). Booting the system using a "WinPE" disc and fixing OS drive letter assignment may solve the issue.

I've got a laptop setup for QUAD BOOT with XP Home, XP Pro, Vista and Win7 build 7000.

Can anyone tell me how to, or point me to a guide that shows how to, remove the quad boot and go back to just the XP bootloader? I want to eliminate the Vista and Win7 loads from this machine.

Thanks so much in advance!

(By the way, I tried googling, just couldn't seem to come up with the right keywords for the search!)

A:XPHome/XPPro/Vista/Win7 Quad boot - how to remove Vista and Win7?

Easiest way is backup and reinstall. You would have to edit the boot.ini file and remove the partitions manually. If they are primary, you probably won't see them.

First backup.

Boot into Each operating system and change the C: label to XPPro_C, Vista_C, Win7_C, and XPHome_C. This way you can tell the OS partitions apart. In XPHome_C, login as administrator. Go into Disk Management and see if you can see all four partitions. Then, you can delete Vista and Win7. In boot.ini in the XPHome_C drive should be boot.ini. It might be hidden, you could just edit out the two OS. It should work. It could crash. So backup first.

Hi,
I currently have a dual boot on my computer with Windows 7 and XP. Unfortunately as my computer is quite old my hard drive is not very big and with it being partitioned I am fast running out of disk space. So I tried to shrink the XP partition to allow me more disk space for Windows 7. Unfortunatley this would only let me shrink it by 83mb for some reason. I decided that since I barely use XP anymore that I would simply reformat the XP drive then try and merge them together. When I tried to format the partition it just gave the error "Windows was unable to complete the format". I then discovered in Disk Management that the Windows XP partition was the system partition which was causing the problem. Please help me with this issue before I run out of disk space!!

Thanks

A:How do I change the system partition from XP partition to Win7?

I think you should do it from outside XP, obviously and suggest install a partitioning tool, like Easus partition manager which I have used regularly. There are a number of good ones, all free including Gparted which you download and burn to a cd, boot to it and then no amount of system files can get in your way.

You shouldn't have any problems with dual booting the 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 on separate drives or partitions. You can just install the other one on the other drive or partition and have the option to select either one at boot when it's done.

Hello all!
I have a serious problem with a program that my job uses. It is a virtual machine, which allows me to run a separate "machine" within my own. They use this so my personal side of my pc doesn't interfere with the business side, and vice versa. Well, I have downloaded the files several times now, and they appear to dl just fine. Until I run the setup.exe. Then I get an error "1334" every time. I have seen some forums online about this issue, but none that were helpful. The error tells me that it could be a network problem, or a problem with the package. The package comes in .cab files, and each time I re download the package, a different cab malfunctions. My trainer thinks it could be my security, so I disabled it and re did the download. No good. I worked with tech support til almost 1am last night to no avail. I was informed that if I could not figure out what was wrong with my system, or obtain a different system, my job may be at stake. Can someone help me please??

I have a new job with a Time Share Resort. In these trying times, I'm trying to make the best impression I can. I am building an Excel Spread sheet that will allow others to enter data that I will then compile and create reports with.I just can't figure out how to write this formula or if it can even be accomplished. I have 1 column (Column A) that other users will populate with Room numbers. I would then like the second column (Column B) to auto populate with a Home owner's association number and a 3rd column (Column C) to auto populate with the average rack rate for that room that referenced from hidden columns. I have 3 pre-populated columns hidden, titled (Column R) Room Numbers (Column S) HOA numbers and (Column T) average Rack Rates. The Rows in the columns (R, S, and T) reference each other: example: If R1 is Room # 1001, then S1 is HOA 1, and T1 is $212.00. So if someone types in 1001 in A7, then the data that corresponds from Column R, in this case 1001 will reference Column S and Column T and auto populate that info into Column B7 and Column C7, respectfully. Is this impossible to do? Or is there a simple formula or macro that can be written to accomplish this?

I truly, truly appreciate any assistance I can get!

Hi folks. depends.exe will not function on my Vista Ultimate x64. Any program I try to start has an error finding IESHIMS.DLL. The program will not profile as a consequence. There is a search sequence that could be modified but this DLL is not within the list.

Search results as a screenshot is attached. There are about 10 of these DLLs with varying dates, locations and versions. The machine runs very well otherwise; no administrative errors in the logs.

The reason this program is being used was spurred on by a Nero tech who supposedly found an error in the Nero 9 diagnostics CAB file. The complaint was that I could not view an MOV in Showtime. I think it is the file which was downloaded from Frostwire. Nero does everything else perfectly. I would still like to get depends to work for general knowledge and future diagnostics.

A:A fresh win7 install over a win7/vista dual boot system ?

is it the only HDD in the laptop (i used to think 1 was the max but i've been encountering people with two recently)? If so, (and if you want to wipe the hard drive completely (don't forget to deactivate any programs, such as iTunes)) just put the install disc in, boot into it (without booting into windows), choose the install option that isn't 'upgrade' (i think it's 'custom' offhand). when it takes you to the partition manager, click 'advanced' on the bottom bit and delete and format all partitions until you have just one big empty disk.
If that doesn't work or if you think it might not, just boot into a Puppy Linux live cd, open up gparted and select the 'new partition table' tool.

Hello all, I tried as best I could to search on this and saw a few similar threads but still cant get this to work right.

As the tittle says, I have a HP desktop that came with Vista, I partitioned my C drive (which already had a small partition from HP for the recovery stuff labeled D and made a "S" drive for the Win7 install.

I installed the copy of Win7 i made from the official ISO from MS and it works ok as long as the DVD is still in the drive...it asks to press any key to boot from cd or DVD, I leave it alone then my option screen comes up and I can pick from either vista or win7 just fine. If the DVD is NOT in the drive then the options I have are either vista or "Windows Setup" and in that case I get

File: \$WINDOWS..~BT\Windows\System32\winload.exe

Status: 0xc000000f
selected entry couuld not be loaded cuz missing or corrupt

I tried to do the automatic reapair in the WIN7 installer and sometimes it would come up as finding an error and says it fixed but most of the time it says there is nothing wrong.

Here is what I get from EasyBCD

Ok gang, I have one that really is throwing me for a loop. One computer in my company is having difficulties in sending e-mails through Outlook 2007 running POP3. The part that has me scratching my head is that everything works fine while the computer is connected here in our office, but whenever she leaves, she has intermittent sending issues... it just hangs in the ourbox. It works for the first few minutes then stops sending them out. I have searched all through the Microsoft site and couldn't find anything that related.

Any ideas on what to look for?

A:Outlook 2007 - e-mail stuck in outbox (depends on ISP)...

I had a similar issue, though it may not be the same.

Some ISP's (like AT&T, who I hate and despise and upon whom I heap curses and incantations of evil) won't let you use any SMTP server other than theirs to send mail, even if the e-mail account isn't with them. You have to go through a whole rigamaroll to set it up.

But like I said, your issue may be (and probably is) something different. Are there any error messages?

I want to create a third Partition using Vista's new Partition program.

I have 222 GB space on C:Local disk and 10.4 GB space on D:Recovery
I am currently using about 70 GB (programs & files) on the C:
which leaves 151 GB Free space.

I would like to move all my programs and picture/music/word files over to a new partition, but I'm not sure what size the new partition should be.

Are there any standard procedures (other than backing every file up) that I should follow, as far as partitioning goes?

Do I have to extend or rename anything already existing? Or do I just create a new "simple partition" with that program that comes with Vista?

I sure appreciate any help and precautions you can throw my way.

Hi,

I know this is probably a rather tiresome query, but I've surfed the net endlessly and not found a solution. I'm attempting to populate a memo box, which depends on user choice from a chain of combo boxes (unbound).

I'm creating a classroom planning/assessment database application (the new Learning Essentials for those involved in Australian Education). The system I'm creating, database-wise, is a little complicated (I am an absolute self-taught beginner, so please be kind and precise with your terminology, explaining where I should find the tools you mention). We have 7 "KLAs", which are each chosen with an "Assessable Element" (depending on the KLA) for each grade, which each act as an umbrella for a number of "Knowledge and Understandings" (each K & U has a descriptor of more than 255 characters. Under each "Knowledge and Understanding" is a dozen or so "Detailed Elements" (that the kids get assessed on). So I have the following hierarchy of tables:

KLA
Assessable Elements

Ways of Working (differing and dependent on previous choices)
Knowledge and Understandings (includes the descriptor)

I have tried many internet solutions without success. LT 1 and LT 2 homegroup with each other and network with DT 2 just fine, DT 1 is the only PC excluded from this. I have all my sharing settings set and I have gone through the network set-up many times, fiddled with my router settings a little bit, but came up with nothing.

When I search for other PC's on my network (from DT 1) I find no other PC's or the wireless printer. When I search from any other PC I find and have access to everything except DT 1!

I have Sophos Anti-virus and firewall, disabling the firewall makes no difference (windows firewall already disabled).

I cannot see the wireless printer in the 'network discovery' but it shows up when I need to print and prints just fine.

When I go to: control panel\ network and sharing and click the "see full map"
I can see LT 1 and LT 2 as wireless items, so they do exists, but what gives?

Thanks for your time on this.

Hello,

So, awhile back a made an error in judgement when I decided to split one of my hard drives into two partitions (that's not the error). I used the first partition for Windows 7 and programs that weren't games. I then put all my games, videos, music, etc on the second partition. Looking back I probably should have made the first partition smaller and put everything else on the second partition.

At any rate, I don't feel like going through the first partition and moving programs to the second one (unless there is an easy way to do this without uninstalling programs). What I want to do is simply take some of the free space on my second partition and move it to the first (without having to delete the second one). I am wanting to find out the easiest/best way to do this.

I know I can shrink the second and free up a chunk, but for the extend option to work, I would need to move that freed up space next to my first partition...so is there a program that can do that?

Or should I simply clone my second partition, delete at, extend the first one, and restore the second one? If so, any programs you'd recommend for doing so?

Thanks for any and all assistance.

A:Win7 - Need to extend a partition

You should be able to do it from windows disk partition.

You should be able to "shrink" the second partition so it becomes unallocated space. Then by clicking "Extend" on your first partition, you will be able to then add the unallocated space. So expanding your first partition.

Welcome to the Se7en Forums! and drive partitioning tools too! Haenk

Your problem there is very basic being that XP which you are running now is an older version of Windows to start with as well as something from the previous XP/7 dual boot if you had that is still accessing the G primary 7 was on.

Before restoring the XP image back on C hopefully you wiped the C primary entirely to remove the virus itself not simply restored the image. Without wiping it entirely 7 boot files and information would be remaining. The fast and easy solution of wiping the G 7 primary there would be using a 3rd party drive tool you boot up live from like GParted(free) or another program unless you intend to see 7 running again.

If 7 went on last while the XP drive was still plugged in and did see the boot files placed at the root of C originally and you have the 7 installation dvd you may be able to recover the 7 BCD store and mbr entries. Once 7 is up and running you would be able to add XP into the 7 boot options with a 3rd party tool like EasyBCD for a working dual boot.

The second option for that is simply unplugging the drive XP is on first in order to see the 7 drive made bootable on it's own before adding XP in as a boot option with the 7 drive set as the default boot device. Or you could use the F key assigned at post time to bring up the boot device menu when wanting to boot into 7.

I?ve been at this for 4 days, trying to get win 7 64 bit on the right partition. I can get it installed but, it deletes C: (just the drive letter) the drive is still there, and rearranges other drive letters.

I have a 240 gig HD partitioned up to the letter N. Of these XP was installed in 3 different partitions. 1 each for the internet, games and Autocad.

Specs are: Asrock 775 dualvsta
Pentium 4 3.4 G
Nvidia 8600GT
1 G memory Corsair
CD-DVD
Creative 7 speaker sound
Feedback joy stick
Nothing overclocked right now.

Here is what takes place. If I start the Win7 32 bit install from within XP it will install properly. This is the first thing I did. I didn?t realize my machine would run 64 bit. When I found that out I installed it. Had to boot from the DVD disc, custom install, went well. Runs good, I like it, much faster. Then I realize what happened.

It put itself on C: drive. That drive wasn?t partitioned big enough for that. What the, now Autocad in on F:, supposed to be on G:. Holy crap. The hair on the back of my neck is straight up. All the other drives are screwed up. I wonder if I can get into XP.

A:Installing win7 in the right partition

Just point to the partition where you want it to install on the Custom install drive screen. It should install there. The letter is irrelevant at that point anyway; you are choosing from a map. You can even use Advanced Drive tools to delete, create New and format to be sure.

Win7 will decide what letter it wants to be which will have no effect whatsoever on programs, files, etc, as it remains relative to the OS you are in at the time.

It is a bit disconcerting until you get used to it.

Pretty unique problem here, according to google. I do an annual windows reinstall from an iso I made of the windows boot CD when I bought windows 7. I made the iso because it's easier to keep track of files rather than CDs, and whenever I would need to reinstall I would burn the iso to a disc, install from the disc, and throw out the disc once the install was complete. Well tonight I ran out of CDs with a large enough capacity to hold the iso, so I decided to get a bit fancy.

I mounted the iso and ran the setup utility through windows, and had it install a new partition of windows to one of my unused storage drives. The install went well, I restarted, and saw that there was an option to boot from two partitions of windows 7. I eventually figured out which one was the new one, and once desktop loaded up I went into msconfig and removed the old partition from the boot tab.

The problem pops up when I went back to reformat the old partition. It gave me an error stating that it cannot format a system drive. I figure that this is because the old partition is still active somehow even though I removed it from the msconfig boot menu.

Through a bit of googling I got a general idea of what had to be done, so I went into disk management and set the new partition to 'active'. I then restarted and went into BIOS, and switched the disk boot order so that the new partition came before the old partition. My bios did not like this, because it gave me an error about NTLDR ...

Hi,

I have installed windows-7 beta and recently the rc-1 on a 10 Gb partition. It installed without the 100 mb install partition and without any errors as I only had 10 Gb left on my Maxtor to give win7 a spin.

Win7 seems to run ok for a couple of hours than start to develop corruption errors on the ntfs drive, but no warnings are given. After a normal shutdown the mbr of the drive turns out to be hosed !

This has happened to me twice now and is really annoying as there are NO warnings from win7 at all !

You just shutdown normally to find your drive totally empty (or so it seems) the next morning. Very scary especially for clueless peeps...

I have seen similar reports concerning this behaviour in other win7 forum and the reason for win7 to blow itself up is probably the lack of drive space on the partition (10 Gb).

Any other testers here who can confirm this behaviour ?

I hope they fixed this in the RTM version as this is a ms product unworthy and more like amateur behaviour.

cheers...

Shouldn't be a problem. During the beta testing I had multiple versions of 7 on various partitions. Remember that the default OS will be the last one installed.

A:how do i format a dos partition on a win7

I'm not sure that Windows 7 allows formating for DOS, as it uses a different boot sector (for non-system drives it's easy, just format as FAT16). The best thing is to boot from that floppy. Have you seen in the BIOS that the boot order is the drive first?

Besides, a probably better solution would be to give DosBox a try. It can run many DOS programs inside Windows (and other OSs too) without the need to dual-boot. Most programs run quite well inside it.
