Windows 7/XP question

Hey guys.

I've just succesfully installed Win7 onto a brand-new 500Gb 7200.12, C: and D:.
I have salvaged my previous HDD, a 320Gb 7200.11, which shows up in Win7 as F: and G:.
I was surprised to find that XP survived in F:, and my PC can dualboot but I don't really want it to.

My question is, after I have salvaged what I want from the 320Gb, can I format the 320Gb as a whole?
Or will it remain as two separate drives, one 30Gb and the other 270Gb?

    You can make it into a single disk if you wish, right click my computer, then go to manage, select disk management then delete the partitions that are there and create a single large partition then format.
