i have windows 7 ultimate before and it goes to slow and i decided to reformat my pc,Now I use home premium. Every time I boot there a list that I have to choose.. When I choose the other windows 7, I'm shocked that I still have windows 7 ultimate.. I think it serves as the dual boot..I mean dual os.. I can run home premium, and also i can run ultimate.. Now I want to get rid of windows 7 ultimate, which is my first os... I know how to delete, but I'm not sure if it will give any problems...I type msconfig I see the boot list try to delete since I don't know what will happen, I'm not trying it ... I want to ask here first.. I hope you can help me...

By the way, I'm trying to reformat again, and I want to remove my previous os, which is windows 7 home premium if ever I do reformat..

Do you have hard drive partitions? 2 versions of Windows can't coexist on the same partition. You probably formatted the wrong one. MSConfig won't delete an operating system, you'll have to format the partition on which the operating system is installed.

I'm not familiar with boot-loaders, someone else can help you with that.

EXACTLY what do you want to do? Your first post is unclear.

Do you want to remove the entry from the boot loader? Do you want to uninstall one or the other OS? Do you want to delete (format) everything and start from scratch? Please be clear. Thank you.
