Windows® 7 Dual Boot Removal
What should one remove windows 7 from dual boot? How can the removal process be carried out properly?
If the hard drive of a system contains two Operating Systems, allowing each operating system the capability to load and control, such systems are known as dual boot systems. Whenever you turn on the system, then a program called boot manager displays a menu, allowing you to choose the Operating System you wish to use. During this process, boot manager replaces the normal boot record to work in the way the user specifies. You need to have plenty of hard disk space to use more than one operating system in your computer. The disadvantage of a dual boot is it slightly degrades the system performance since both the operating system have to share the available resources. If you have installed multiple operating systems in your computer, you can execute programs in one operating system that are not compatible with the other. To use dual boot, you need to have the device drivers that are compatible with both the operating systems.
