    Uninstalling Win 8 Pro, reinstalling?


    I purchased Windows 8 and installed it onto a separate partition so I could dual boot, mainly so I could test out the OS, decide if I like it, etc.

    Now, if I want to uninstall Win 8 from the partition and install it over my main drive, so that I can send the extra space back to the main drive as well, how would I go about doing this?

    Could I just format the Win8 partition while I'm in Win 7 so it wipes everything, resize the partition so it all goes back into the main partition, reboot, install Win8 again over top of Win7 on the main drive, and be good?

    Or is there more of a process involved?

    Thanks!
