I have XP (SP3 & all latest updates) & Vista on a PC hard drive partitioned into C: and D: respectively.
Now I know I'm a naughty girl, but I downloaded Vista (pre SP1) to check it out via a torrent & it included Vista Loader v2.1.2. The activation code is now well & truly expired and I just want to format the D: partition & use it to store media on, but it won't let me. I am trying to do it from within XP, as I can't get into Vista anymore (Microsoft detection occurred at the SP1 release).
When I boot up I get the option of Windows Vista (default) or Earlier version of Windows. This was all done so long ago I can't remember what I did so I can properly look up how to undo it.
Any help to recover my precious GIGS of hard drive space would be appreciated, thank you.
