    Unable to Install windows 8 again after Deleting its Partition using Disk Management?

    For testing purpose, I created a new partition and Installed windows 8 in that partition.Windows 7 was also installed on some other drive.I liked some feature of windows 8 but some features were annoying so I decided to Delete that partition where windows 8 was installed.I does that using Disk Management but when I restarted my computer and shocked to see that the bootloader for windows 8 was still present there.Now when I run windows 8 ISO file, it reflects compatibility issue and thus I am not able to install windows 8 again.What may be the reason and How to correct this error?

    My friend you have deleted only partition,by deleting only partition won't solve your problem.You should format that drive again and then try to install windows again.By deleting partition you don't delete the important files required by windows you need privileges to do that so format your drive by logging on to windows 7 oS.And then try to install the windows 8

    Whenever you say "Delete", it means you have removed it from your HDD. But how can you say you have deleted partition.
    A drive is a part of your Hard disk ..!!
    What might have happened is , your Windows 8 drive files still exist as all files cannt simple deleted.

    What you should do now is :
    Login with Windows 7 OS. Then go to "My computer" , now select the drive which contains the files of Windows 8.
    Right click it , chose "format drive".
    Now your drive will be formatted and then you can use it from any other purpose or you can merge it back to your previous drive.

    hello friend, deleting the files doesnt mean that you have deleted the OS. few traces will be remained in the system even you delete the OS.
    To delete a OS, you must format that particular drive. if system doesn't permit you to format then use third party application like Mini Partition Tool Wizard. which has lots of options to format, clean edit your hard disk.

    Once you have cleared your partition. Still you will notice Dual Boot Option while start up. If you want to delete that too, then follow below steps.

    Press Win+R.
    Type "msconfig".
    go to BOOT tab.
    Now delete the boot entry which you want to delete.
    Click on "delete".
    Click OK.


    Happy to assist you.

    Dear friend,

    The problem is caused due to the boot loader file present on your hard drive (probably on the Windows 7 operating system drive). You have to change the configuration of that file to remove the boot loader for Windows 8. This can be done by repairing the Windows 7 with the help of Windows 7 disk. To repair Windows 7, boot with Windows 7 disk and after configuring the language and location options, select system repair option. After this, your system will be able to install Windows 8 without any problem.

    Thanks!
