Windows 7 Dual Boot Laptop
Posted on 2011-02-14
I have a laptop that currently is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit. I would like to set this laptop up to dual boot with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit. Unfortunately, I don't have the media for the Windows 7 Home Premium OS. This laptop was purchased and the OS was OEMed. Someone told me that Windows 7 has the capabilities of repartition the hard-drive similar to a Partion Magic software. So here are my questions:
1. Can I use the existing Windows 7 Home Premium install to repartition the hard-drive to carve out some space for the Windows 7 Professional install?
2. Once I have the space carved out, what is the proper procedure or necessary tricks to have this laptop dual boot?
