Can True Image 2009 completely remove a partition from a bootable recovery CD?
I've installed Windows 7 RTM on a new PC and I've now learned that I may have to remove it before I can install the Windows 7 UPGRADE version on that PC. I was misled into believing that I could simply use the license key from my Upgrade version of Windows 7 to authorize the pre-existing RTM copy of Windows 7. Since this may not be the case I may have to remove the existing partition on the hard drive to get the upgrade version to install so I'm in need of something that I can boot from a CD and remove that existing partitition. Let me know if TI Home 2009 has that functionality. Thanks.
The TI2009 recovery CD has Acronis Drive Cleanser on it which should work.
I'm not sure why a regular format wouldn't work but you could also boot up any Windows Installation disk and repartition the drive.
You could also restore a TI image to the partition and then kill it before it finishes which would leave unallocated space.
