I have a gateway p-6825 laptop.

I wanted to get rid of all the preloaded stuff so I put the Vista DVD in and rebooted

I didnt see any option to format. so what it did was moved my current windows into a windows.old folder

also saw the dual boot screen once when it rebooted, although now it seems to be hiding it

anyways, whats the safest way to remove the old copy and remove that entry in the multiboot settings?

thanks

There are other threads on this elsewhere if you search. Problem is I have never got any of the suggestions to work. I now have over 20gig tied up with this folder.

When I get time I will do a clean install after first formatng the drive with a tool to get rid of everything on it first. Drastic step but it will work.
