Not sure if this is *entirely* the correct forum, but it does concern Windows 7, so here goes.
Ever since I started testing Windows 7, I've dual-booted it with XP (single HDD partitioned into C and D). It's been 6 months or more since I used XP, so I've now decided that the time is right to ditch it and reclaim the HDD space.
Trouble is, since XP was installed first, the drive views that partition as the primary one. I would prefer to just format the XP partition and enlarge my Windows 7 one, but in relative terms, XP is located "before" 7, thus I cannot grow the 7 partition using unused space from the XP partition. I'm also not sure what will happen if I just format the primary partition.
Any advice on how I can remove XP without affecting my Win7 installation? The main aim here is to have just one partition with Windows 7 on after all is done and dusted.
P.S. I have GParted, so I can manage partitions outside of Windows if needed.
