How do I remove Windows Vista (Beta) without formatting?
I installed a Vista beta on my D:\ partition and have been dualbooting for a
while.

Now I'd like to remove Vista without formatting my D:\ partition. I have
200GB of stuff in there that I do not have space to backup anywhere else.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thank you for your time,

/gozu

Hi Practical Student,

Simple: Boot into Vista and change the Boot Order to boot into the older
operating system first. Then you can delete the Vista operating system files
from XP, if possible. You may need to take ownership of the files. If you
can't, then you will need to reformat the partition or leave Vista alone and
don't use it.
