Help for a big card please.

I've been away from CHDK for a long time and have apparently become a noob again. I have pictures on the card and want them on my computer so I can upload them to the internet. How do I switch the partitions around so the chdk_big partition is the primary? I haven't installed anything yet, and since the last time I dealt with the partitions on the card have done a fresh install of the operating system. I am currently running 64-bit Windows 7 Pro and I am using a 32gb card.

You can do it with the right software on your PC but the easiest way to do it is probably "in camera".

With CHDK booted,  there is a menu item that swaps the primary partition.  Change it just before you take the card out to put into your PC.  Then reboot the camera with CHDK using the "firmware update" method,  go to the menu and switch the partitions back.

Thanks. Like I said, however, I have become a noob again. How, exactly do I do that?
