When you attempted to install Win 7, the Windows XP boot loader ceases to be important. The Win 7 bootloader is now the key, reflecting both operating systems.
Deleting the Windows 7 partition...does not resolve the situation that the Win 7 bootloader now has control of the system boot files. Consequently, you are still presented with two boot options, even though you have eliminated your Win 7 install.

Removing Your Win 7 Partition
Me...I think that I just used EasyBCD to remove the bootloader files when I broke up one of my XP/Win 7 dual-boots earlier but I won't suggest that, bowing to the solutions that others have tried and are certain will do the job. I believe that I just took the easy way out and removed the boot option for the departed Win 7 install, because I don't care about the Win 7 bootloader files still being on the XP install...I eliminated the boot option that was nonexistent.
