Having problems with your Gateway MT3705 Notebook ?

Erasing operating system

\015 I have two operating systems installed on my Gateway computer but I only want one of them. When I try to use Vista, it says I am running low on disk space and that I need to erase some stuff. I'm guessing it's the XP operating system that's taking up all that space since I have saved virtually nothing on the computer. I have an option to use Vista or XP everytime I boot up the computer. How do I erase XP?\015

Answers :

Hi, the best option might be to download Norton's Partition Magic (www.symantec.com) ($69.95) however, you can likely find previous versions for down load cheaper or free online. This will allow you to delete the partition that you have XP running on. One thing I will mention to you though, is that it is unlikely XP is causing your computer to slow down. In fact, quite the opposite. Your Vista load draws significantly more resources and memory so you might be better served to remove the Vista load. At any rate, whatever you decide. Make sure to back-up your important files prior to any deleting/re-formatting.
