If you look in Computer how many partitions do you see?

 

Are you trying to keep the other Windows operating system so that you can boot from either?

Hi

 

Follow this guide to remove Windows.old folders.

 

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/19151-windows-old-folder-delete.html

 

You may need to remove the entries from BCD either by manually or by using 'EasyBCD'
