Basically I've installed Windows 8 Pro over an existing Windows 7 install, and I told it not to copy any personal files or applications. Now in my C: drive I have a Windows.old folder.
Is it possible to reinstall Windows 7 in a different partition and then enter Windows 8 and overwrite the entire Windows folder from the fresh Windows 7 install with the Windows.old folder? I just don't want to reinstall all the programs manually.
Of course I'd format the current C: drive and then change the new partition drive letter back to C:, to keep the consistency of the old install.
