Default Re: Help!! W7 wont let me format my Vista HDD :(

It never locked me out of my vista partition.

So from reading around the internet, it seems it is because the MBR is sitting on the vista partition, and you have to put it on the w7 partition so that the "Sytem" tag is off from Vista Partition.

There seem to be several ways but not all seem 100%...clear on the story...

its a good thing i was able to repair the mbr/restore it last night when i used the w7 installation disc to format the partition of vista and it all crapped out -.-.
