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?

Can you right click the Windows 8 partition and select make primary. Also why are you playing with partitions? if it works dont fix it lol if you need the space format your old partition.
