Dual Boot - How to remove Developer Preview? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I set up a new partition to install the Preview on, but after install, it said it could not run on my hardware and just booted into windows 7.  How would I go about deleting the Developer Preview without screwing up booting windows 7?  Can i just delete the partition?  When I boot, it gives me the choice of the DP or 7, and I want to make sure I will still be able to boot 7.  Thanks

  • Hi,

    You can boot into Windows 7 and set that OS to be your default using the following bcdedit command from an elevated command prompt:

    bcdedit /default {current}

    At this point you could format or delete the Developer Preview partition. You will still have the BCD entry for Developer Preview but it can be safely ignored.

    Hope this helps,
