How to remove the extra windows edition in my laptop?
Are you looking for ways to remove the extra windows edition in your laptop? Ask our technical experts to guide you through.
I had windows 32 bit professional OS in my laptop. Then I wanted to install 64 bit. When I got 64 bit Ultimate edition, I tried to install it. The upgrade option didnt work saying windows 32 bit cannot be upgraded to 64 bit. So I chose the custom option. I dint have any option to make changes to the partition and it was very less. That time I dint know how.
During the installation my laptop restarted few times and I saw the old 32 bit os is also there. AFter finishing the installation, it is showing 2 editions when starting up.
I wanted to remove the 32 bit installation. On referring online, they told to login with the desired OS and find the folder of the other Os.
My 64 bit has been installed in F drive and the old 32 bit is in C drive. I tried to delete the folder but it said I required permission from TrustedInstaller. So changed the ownership from properties to Administrator. But then too it said I require permission from Administrator. But I was myself an administrator.
I gave full control to the user which is myself is an administrator. But it couldnt apply the attribute to few configuration file. And I couldnt delete the Windows folder for 32 bit.
I tried to format the C partition but Windows was unable to complete that too. So still the folder exists.
Can you tell me how to delete folder? To remove it from the boot menu, I learnt how to do it. But to delete the folder, I am facing this permission issue.
