I first installed WinXP on the first partition of hard disk - drive C:. After that I installed Windows 7 on a new created 4. partition of the HD. When I start Windows 7 using boot menue, drive C: ist now for Windows 7 and D: is for WinXP with following status displayed by disk managment:
C: startpartition, paging file, core dump, logical
D: system, active, primary
Becauser I dont need WinXP anymore, can I delete the partition of C: and install instead a new linux OS on it? Will D: automatically be the system and active drive?
