    Hmm, now i want to upgrade my legit Win 7 home basic to Win 7 Pro. Whats the latest loader which works for Win 7 Pro 64 bit? Daz - http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/8632-Program-based-Windows-7-loader ??

    And about 100mb or 200mb partition, i just saw post about "how to avoid" but not how to delete or such things. Now i wanna install a new OS, is it possible for me to delete the partition "safely" during that installation without hurting my Computer? " just delete the partition when it asks to install in which partition? " It's so ugly
    or can i at least change the "drive letter"? i'm so worried if i changed it the os cant find it when it boots

    Format the hard drive before you install windows on it and it wont create the 100mb partition.

    Its not safe to delete it if its already there because it contains your bootmanager. You can delete it and expand the main partition but windows will not boot. To make it boot again you have to run the recovery disc boot repair and it will install the bootmanager to the main partition.

    EDIT:Oh and yeah daz's loader is the best around at the moment.

    Windows 7 always hides that partition by default for me, and most other people as well. You might be able to use the Disk Manager to remove the drive letter, and then you won't see it again.
