Okay, so I have Windows 7 and XP dual-booted, with windows 7 on one partition, and one on another. It takes up about 100GB and I never use XP anymore so I was wondering how I would go about this. Can I just go into a partition manager and delete the partition or what? What do I do?

One option would be to open the Start Menu, select Computer, and format the partition you want to delete. This would preserve that partition for later use. Another option would be to use Disk Management and delete the partition you no longer have any use for. Then 'Expand' or 'Extend' the adjoining partition to use the now vacant partition which would result in one large partition.

Although it says Vista...Vista and Win 7 use the same bootloader, which is different from the one XP uses.
