Hi Gucio,

Do you want to keep your partition and just reformat the partition or merge the whole thing together. You can make a backup of your important files on 7 and just delete and extend the disk.

Oh, I'm sorry. If you wanted to delete and extend your partition on xp, I believe you will need to use a third part tool to do this.

This will show you how to backup files on xp.

Deleting/formatting the WIN7 partition should be enough. Normally, your bootloader is installed on the first partition (XP) so after deleting it, you will still see the 2 options at startup, (winxp or win7) but win7 won't work.
To fix that, you can use BCDEDIT since boot.ini won't work, and remove the win7 entry from the bootloader.

Gucio, if you just want to delete your win 7 partition from xp, just follow the instructions in here, then do what limneos has said.

But i find that in Win 7 is new boot loader from vista and i should put cd with windows xp when it start push R or F10 and next i must log on disk and by console write fixmbr or fixboot

Am I right ?

No. If you run that then you'll break the W7 bootlaoder.
