Installing Windows 2008 Server Enterprise (Windows 7 installation removal)
Posted on 2013-07-01
I have a simple question, I wish to install Windows 2008 Server Enterprise edition on a PC that already has an installation of Window 7. How should I approach this:
a) Insert the Windows 2008 Server media disk and this will allow me to format the Windows 7 installation?
b) Format the Windows 7 OS first? If so how should I do this and how to install Windows 2008 Server from the BIOS? Just insert the media disk?
Presumably Windows 7 is on one of the partitions so I first format that partition (will the Windows 2008 Server wizard allow me to do this?) and after formatting I can create the necessary partitions to install Windows 2008 Server and leaving one partition for data.
I just want to ensure I don't mess up the installation as it is a brand new laptop (very high spec) on which I am installing this on.
I have other questions also but I will put those on another post :-)
