Is it possible to get rid of a partition which has Windows Home edition on it (C drive)? I have Windows Pro edition on the F drive.

After many years I had hoped for a tool that does this for the casual owner. But it never showed up.

The only supported method is to install XP on drive C:

thanks for your reply. Should I just uninstall Windows Home edition from drive C and leave XP on drive F? What about formatting the both drives and then having one big drive and then downloading Windows Home edition, will this work? I just need more space and don't need two Windows programs on one drive.

Your choice on the matter.

The direction you take depends on your needs. Sadly, a "moving" Windows procedure never appeared.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
