Two windows vista in my PC

  • Jorge Lira Oct 19, 2008

    My PC has two partitions C and D. The partition D is named RECOVERY (D). In D apparently resides the duplicate Windows Vista installation. Isnt any danger formatting D? This RECOVERY disk contains the following subdirectories



    Dell

    PerfLogs

    Program Files

    Program Data

    Sources

    Tools

    Users

    Windows



    If I Format the RECOVERY disk I will lose those subdirectories.



    Thanks for your help and advice

Hi lira,

Assuming that C: is the designated system drive, format F: to remove the
installation. Then, run msconfig and on the boot tab delete the entry that
it used to load the duplicate and/or 64-bit installation.

    Hi jorge, back up the recovery files to a data cd. confirm that files were copied and you should be all right. If they already exist on the recovery cd then you covered two ways. And, yes when format hdd you will lose everything, so make sure you have copies of the file/files you want to keep i.e. photos, documents etc...

Hi Joyce
you need to click start/windows icon(bottom left) then click on control panel. in the control panel you are looking for add/remove programs (windows xp) or programs and features (windows vista/7) double click this and find your program in the list which is displayed, click once on it then click uninstall (either above for xp or on the same line for vista/7) hope this helps.

I accidently installed Facemood on google chrome and want to uninstall it , how do I do it on windous Vista?


in WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE,we'll just type the word UNINSTALL A PROGRAM in the space provided above the START BUTTON and click it,then follows the next instructions...maybe,the approach in WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE and VISTA in uninstalling a program is nearly the same...
you just have to FIND OUT where you can find the "UNINSTALL A PROGRAM".. I suppose you can find it in the CONTROL PANEL... :D

Uninstalling vista


Well i Suggest That You Should Install Windows XP On This System Because The Configuration Of Hardware Would Mess Up Everything In Case Of Windows Vista Installation..

There are 2 ways of UNINSTALLING WINDOWS VISTA


1) Using MS-DOS PROMPT and for that u need to have good expertise with the MS-DOS so that u can RUN DEBUG COMMAND on the hard drive

2) Method Is Easy .. it is to install WINDOWS XP and after its installation WINDOWS VISTA would be uninstalled

Temme if u need HELP in re-installing WINDOWS XP....

    what do you mean the windows vista goes away? are you talking about the os or just the vista icon?
    When you boot up the pc press F8 before or while it's in post or startup then select Last Known Good Configuration.
    if any program or hardware software was installed recently before the problem started select Safe Mode with Networking then uninstall the program recently installed.
