    I used to have a Ubuntu install and my windows 7 install on different partitions but now I want to have my entire hard drive space for just windows 7. How do I recombine the old partitions? It's fine if I have to reinstall, I was planning on doing it for 7077 anyway. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Just delete both partitions and re-format hard drive.

    Yeah I just used gparted and that worked wonders. Thanks though. 7077 is sweet by the way.

    I use only GParted for partitioning.

    Yes the windows 7 disk will be all that is needed to delete and format your hard disk - it is very fast too :)

    GParted works faster than win 7 installation disk.

    True GParted is good and fast but with the windows 7 disk in the drive and using windows 7 to partition you may find it as the edge :razz:

    Hmm. With GParted i can format to almost every format i want. GParted boots up faster. You don't have to click so much ok, next, next, and so more, before you can start formatting
