How do I get Windows .old to be my OS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I made a big mistake. I did a  clone of my OS (Win 7) and Then reloaded the OS from my installation disk. Now I would like to revert back to my original setup with all the apps and files. Using Windows Explorer I see they are all there under Windows.old. I tried using the procedure in Kb971760 and it didn't work. Can I simply rename windows.old to windows and rename windows to windows.old? I hope I have the right forum. If not let me know
