This will delete both OS's... and you can then load on 7 again.. Make sure you backup your serial's and your data. This would be painful to do, but im not sure of any other way. Perhaps someone else will comment. pjmelect a b $ Windows 7 December 7, 2011 11:12:40 PM Simple, use BCDedit to edit the boot menu to remove the Windows XP option. Once this is removed you can then simply delete the Windows XP files using Explorer. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
