    Hi,
    I'm very green! Installed new SSDrive on my computer and upgraded Windows 8 to it. How do I delete Windows 7 off other drive?

    Any chance you could get a Disk Management picture using the snipping tool and attach using the paperclip on advanced replies?

    Having the drive configuration makes it much easier to see what is going on.

    1)Delete the Windows 7 partition.
    2) reboot.
    3) If you still have the Dual boot Menu at startup, delete the Windows 7 in MSCONFIG.
