  • dual booting

    i experimented loading vista 32bit on a spare hdd on my 9262. i no longer want it on the spare drive. just wanna use my other 2 hdd in raid 0 with vista ult 64bit. my question is:
    how do i wipe the vista x32 off the other hdd? i deleted it, and formatted it also. when i boot up, it still shows i hv 2 operating systems. of coarse if i dont select the 2nd os, it defaults to the 1st one which isnt on there anymore so of coarse i hv 2 hit esc and selct the 2nd one(x64).
    any ideas what i can do to make sure it is indeed deleted off the single hdd and also where it will not show up on the boot sequence anymore? thanx!!

    Unfortunately, we don't support dual boot installations

      You might try and get rid of the partition on the disk. The original OS partitioned the disk, then formatted it and installed the OS. The disk still has the original OS partition hence the confusing claim of another OS. At least that is what I remember.
