Re: How to hide old OS from Vista
Your Vista install would have put its bootloader onto the first partition of
your primary drive, which is your C drive. Check in disk Management and you
should see your C drive labelled as System drive. You cannot hide the
System drive. Look at the contents of your C drive when you are booted into
Vista, show hidden files and folders, and operating system files. You will
see the Vista boot files there.
