Well, I have two operating systems, and I don't need both of them. I have Windows Vista, and Windows 7. I want to get rid of Windows Vista, but I don't know how I go about doing this.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go! :)

The first thing I'd like to do is see how your hard drive is set up.

  • Go to Start > Run.
  • Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter.
  • On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see a visual depiction of the partitions on your hard drive. I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply.
  • To take a screenshot press Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key.
  • Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint.
  • Press CTRL+V to paste the contents of the screenshot into the paint workspace.
  • Go to File > Save As.
  • Save the file as a JPEG to your desktop.
Please attach the screenshot to your next reply.

When you bootup are you given a choice between Vista and Win 7?
If not then did you upgrade your system from Vista to Win 7?
