There is absolutely no need other than cosmetic to have Windows on the C:
partition. You should at least warn the OP to backup their data before
following your advice. They will lose everything following your advice.

Complete nonsense!

First of all there's nothing better about having it on C:.
Default or not, it doesn't matter what drive it's installed on.

Second, you're advising him to delete everything on his drive
without even a warning that that's what would happen.

Third, you told him to delete the partition XP is on, then to
reboot to XP. It's no longer there to reboot to.
