    ok, i just installed windows essentials and i had to do a system restore on it, and i accidentally turn off my computer in the middle of it, and i ended having to reinstall windows, and wen i did that, it basically made like two partitions, and wen i boot up my PC it asks which one id like to boot to, one with the broken windows on it and one with the newly installed one does anyone know how i would delete this (broken) partition

    p.s. it doesnt show up on any live cd partition editors, its like all on the same partition


    thx in advanced

    Start <> run <> type msconfig <> click ok <> click on the boot.ini tab <> click check all boot paths <> follow prompts . will not put you in safe mode . It tells you if you have a bad boot path and gives you the option to delete the bad ones .
