Uninstalling multiple copy of XP

  lightfeet 23:50 20 Nov 2005

I have XP installed on 2 Drives (C & E a partition on my 2nd drive). I now wish to remove Xp from my E Drive & retain the copy on C Drive. How do I do this please? Can I simply reformat the E partition on my E Drive?

My last question should have read "Can I simply reformat the E partition on my second hard drive by right clicking the drive & selecting Format?"

In a word, yes. Windows disk management won't let you delete a bootable partition that is currently in use, so don't worry about making a major error. Just right-click the entry in disk management and select delete partition, then you can format and/or resize it as required.

Windoes DM will describe the current boot partition as Local disk and any other bootable partition will normally be called System.

Thanks ade.h for your advice. Hopefully will have time to do this in next few days.

Successfully accomplished. Highlighted the unwanted Xp on E partition & pressed Delete. Worked a treat - many thanks for your help.
