I kept Windows XP installed on my first partition when installing Windows 7. Now I decided I really don't need it any longer, so how can I get rid of it? I can certainly format that partition, but how can I remove the boot entry?
And what would happen if that partition vanished, e.g. by turning it into a Linux one or by using gparted to add the freed space to my Win 7 partition; can Windows 7 cope with such a partition table modification?
