Sucessfly update to Windows 7., except must have missed the step to wipe entire drive.


So the restore partition from XP is still on the C: drive. I have backups for everything, so it is not needed.


Computer keeps asking which OS to boot to on startup. I'm thinking that is because the restore partition D: is still there?


Is the below the right way to fix it so it won't ask everytime which OS to boot to?

Computer Management, disk management

right click on the restore partition and delete the partition

Then right click on the C: drive and use the extend function to "merge" the partition with the C: drive?


Thanks for any advice !

Post a snapshot of a fullscreen Disk Management:


To open Disk Management, press Windows key+r, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter or click GO. Make it full screen. Expand the fields as necessary so everything can be seen.
