I'm in deep trouble here (4 a.m. local time should give u some idea).
My HDD has a primary partition and an extended partition with 3 logical drives in it. My problem is related to C and D drives only. My C drive had Windows 7 (32-bit) on it. I then installed Win7 (64-bit) on D drive. For ease, let's call C as W32 and D as W64 drive. I'm assigning them names becuz when I boot into Win64, my C drive is displayed there as D and D as C, so let's just call them W32 and W64 for ease. So here is the config:
Disk System Boot Type OS ===== ====== ==== ==== == W32 Yes Yes Primary Windows 7 (32-bit) W64 No Yes Extended/Logical Windows 7 (64-bit)
Now I finally happened to settle for 64-bit and wanted to get rid of 32-bit version. I booted into Win64. I cleaned most of the stuff on W32 drive including Windows folder, Program Files and other things and then tried to format it, which failed because Windows didn't want to format a "system" drive. I tried to convert my W64 drive into Primary partition but that wasn't allowed either because a logical drive cannot be converted into Primary.
What is my way forward? All I want is just to get rid of W32 drive and set my W64 drive as primary/active/boot/system.
