  1. Hi Everybody

    I have a Learning programme and just downloaded Windows server 2008 r2 on my hp Where I had already had Windows 7. Now every time I start up my computer, I end up having Windows server 2008r2 on my PC. I need my windows7 to remain in function as well. I just dont know how to Get my original OS back. I need help please, its really frustrating. I can delete Windows server 2008 to Get my Windows 7 back but I dont know how to do it. I have a lot of info on my Win 7. Plz help! I know I should have done something with the partitions etc but I wasn't aware of that earlier.
    What can I do to go back to windows 7 version, not loosing the data, files etc I Have on that OS?
    Regards
    Amir

    Boot from your Windows 7 DVD and do a Startup Repair.

    You might also try EasyBCD (it helps manage dual boots). Download and install on your working OS. Use Advanced settings to add Windows 7 and configure it as a dual boot
