I am not able to understand how the hell did you get the old installation folder? Have you tried reinstalling or something like that then do let me know about it as soon as possible. So that I can get to know about the issue and do address you accordingly.

See what you've done is overwritten Windows 7. What I want to warn you is that you have kept a developers preview or a Pre-Beta stage operating system as your main operating system. Next time when you are going ahead with the installation make sure that you get rid of the old one by fully formatting your system and then begin with the new one. So that?s what you should be doing. I hope this is pretty clear for you.
