How to delete Windows 7 from Dual boot

Hello all,

I have windows XP and Windows 7 (Dual Boot). I want to delete windows 7 from it as my computer becomes really laggy. I have Pentium D as processor with 2 GB DDR2 RAM.

So can you please tell me as to how delete the partition? Will install Fedora in its place.

Hoping to hear from you all soon.

Thank you
Praveer

You can actually doing it by going into the Windows 7 Install disk. Once you get to the point on which partition you would like to install, just delete the partition you have with Windows 7 installed on.

I hope that is helpful. If you need it more clarified, just say so!

Please post screenshot of disk management first. I want to know where the boot files are located.

Not that simple! Maybe boot manager is on Windows 7 partition! First prove it isn't!
And if boot manager is on winxp partition he most likely wants to restore the winxp boot loader so NTLDR

Hi, Thanks for your reply. Well my computer specs are :

2.8 GHz
2 GB DDR2 RAM
Pentium D

So windows should work fine right? Maybe XP is causing problem. So if I delete xp will that stop my computer from lagging ?

Also windows 7 is loaded by default and I don't get option to choose which windows to load during boot up.

Thank you

run msconfig->Boot tab. Is winxp still listed? What is the timeout setting there?
Winxp and Windows 7 aren't interfering . It doesn't cause the lagging.

Still waiting for disk management screenshot!

Well it just lags after boot up....After using it for say 30 mins, it reduces a bit but doesn't vanish. The specs are sufficient for Windows 7 I guess.
