    Did you buy another license when you did this? You can't have two installations of Windows using the same license even if it's on the same machine.

    When you say the old Windows didn't work any more, what does that mean? You weren't able to boot to Windows or some features or functions weren't working properly?

    Does the older Windows work now?
