removing Boot IT BM v.1.28a

Postby 30075 » Mon Nov 17, 2014 9:56 am

ok, after nearly 8 years of using BootIT NG and BootIT BM, I find myself no longer in need of it. Great, rock-solid products, but virtualization has rendered them unnecessary for me. I have two newer PCs with massive amounts of RAM. So I would like some verification of the steps in removing it from the machine it's on. It's a Windows 7 machine with the disk layout below.

here is my plan:
1) slide the disk1 BACKUPS drive to the beginning of disk1 & then expand it so it consumes all 2 TB of disk1.

2) slide the disk0 SHARED extended volume as far left as it will go & then expand it so add that extra unused 200GB to it.
- this brings up a question -- since at that point disk0 will have only four volumes -- System Reserverd, Win7, BOOTIT, & SHARED, is there a way to convert SHARED from an extended volume to a 4th primary partition? would be nice, but if I cannot, I cannot.

3) uninstall BootIT BM, which gives me another 5 MB after Win7.
4) within Windows, expand Win7 to grab that other 5 MB

Am I missing anything? It's been a while since I've done any partition work, so it makes me a bit nervous. I do have full backups stored on other machines, which I made with a bootable DVD & are accessible that way.

Thanks

Re: removing Boot IT BM v.1.28a

Postby TeraByte Support » Tue Nov 18, 2014 7:38 am

just uninstall it, then use the boot disk to do the additional partition
work.

"30075" wrote in message news:8970@public.bootitbm...

ok, after nearly 8 years of using BootIT NG and BootIT BM, I find myself no
longer in need of it. Great, rock-solid products, but virtualization has
rendered them unnecessary for me. I have two newer PCs with massive amounts

the machine it's on. It's a Windows 7 machine with the disk layout below.

here is my plan:
1) slide the disk1 BACKUPS drive to the beginning of disk1 & then expand it

2) slide the disk0 SHARED extended volume as far left as it will go & then

- this brings up a question -- since at that point disk0 will have only four

nice, but if I cannot, I cannot.

3) uninstall BootIT BM, which gives me another 5 MB after Win7.
4) within Windows, expand Win7 to grab that other 5 MB

Am I missing anything? It's been a while since I've done any partition work,
so it makes me a bit nervous. I do have full backups stored on other
machines, which I made with a bootable DVD & are accessible that way.
