How to make the Windows 8 partition as primary? Tags: Configuration Partition Windows 8 Last response: March 21, 2013 1:21 PM in Windows 8 Share dennisrobert March 9, 2013 2:20:47 PM Hi, My system was dual booting Windows 8 and Windows 7. I have deleted the Windows 7 option from the msconfig of Windows 8. Now the system boots automatically into Windows 8 with no problems. However, I am confused if I did it the right way. If I delete/format the Windows 7 partition through Windows 8, will it cause any problems? Also, I found that Windows 7 partition is marked as primary, while the Windows 8 is logical. I am pasting a screenshot of my disk management configuration : Windows 8 is in C Drive (You can see that its logical) Windows 7 was in E Drive There is also a 2.50 GB Simple Basic FAT32 partition with status as - Healthy (System, Active, Primary Partition) - What is this?
