  1. Hey guys, I recently partitioned my terabyte hard drive and installed Windows 7 ultimate to see if the 'windows experience' was better than my Windows 7 premium environment and now all I can boot to is the new Ultimate partition. I went into disk management and tried to mark the old partition active but it will not give me the option. I deleted the partition I had created for backups but still no way to mark the former partition active. I'm not sure what to do now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You should be able to dual boot by using download easybcd to access the boot manager for windows 7 and add the version (premium) missing. Be sure to understand what you are doing first.

    Type "msconfig" in the search bar in start menu and hit enter. Navigate to the boot pane,then select the partition on which you have home premium installed and click " set as default" and then apply. You should be good to go.
