    Due to a very touchy "Crysis" I had to create a second partition and load

    vista64 entirely on its own.



    While this worked well,, am at a bit of a loss how to delete it,,



    Any ideas?

    Are you multi-booting now? Or does your machine automatically boot to the new partition?



    IF the second, you will need to:

    1) Remove the second partition

    2) Resize your original partition to reuse the space

    3) Do a startup repair to restore the boot to the first partition

    I have tried to format the partition in

    Computer Management previously but was never "allowed"

    I always ASSUMED it was due to it being ACTIVE,,

    but logging in as the admin has allowed me to fix it.



    Thankyou for the help :)
