    Windows 8


    I installed W8 on two machines. The second machine I did a dual boot--Windows 7 on one partition and Windows 8 on the other. This is working fine, I'm asked to pick the OS when the machine boots.

    However, I now want to get rid of W8 on this machine and reclaim the C:\ drive space by getting rid of the Windows 8 partition.

    How do I do this while still retaining Windows 7? Can I just delete the Windows 8 partition?

    I assume W8 installed some type of boot manager on my machine and if I just delete W8 this manager will get deleted and I won't be able to go into W7 anymore.

    Any help appreciated!
