As shown in the topic I want to replace the 2nd winXP volume with a new win7 Ultimate. After all working well I would then delete old win7 volume and and add the space to new install. I do not want to delete both & then install as I would like to have a working system for help if it should fail
I understand that the dual boot mgr. on my current system is stored on xp and not win7, which means I would not be able to boot back up to new install as it would not have a boot mgr to use as it would been deleted with xp.
I know the new 7 install would write a new one, but it would not setup the dual boot mgr correctly this way. I thought about adding the new 7 over the old 7, but read it would still loose the boot mgr. Would appreciate any advice for getting this done.
