Dual Boot:: Slackware- Windows 7


Hi,

some months ago I installed Slackware in dual boot with my primary OS: Windows 7. I insatalled Linux Loader too.

At now, I want to remove Slackware without messing up with master boot record.

I will really appreciate every advice.

You should boot Windows 7 installation disc and click "Repair your computer", then select "Startup Repair". After reboot if Windows 7 will boot and you won't see LiLo screen you can remove Slackware partitions using diskmgmt.msc on Windows.

Lukkon, thanks for reply.

Are you sure that "Startup Repair" won't modify anything of my actual windows 7 configuration?

I tried with "Startup Repair" but nothing happened. Linux Loader is still there.

Any other advices?

From a linux command prompt, and as root, type lilo -u <enter>.

If that gives an error about the time-stamps not matching, try lilo -U <enter> (note: that's a capital U this time!) Don't worry about the warnings, its never failed me yet!

As an aside, and just in case you do have to do a more fundamental repair, note that windows 7 uses TWO primary partitions, and its the smaller one you need to boot to get win7 going again in the unlikely event of anything going wrong. Its NOT the windows partition you need to boot!

This link shows how to fix it using the windows disk: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392

It will fix the boot and will not interfere with the windows configurations
