Getting rid of Vista for 7

Hi,
I was just wondering if its a good idea to get rid of my Vista for windows 7, if its possible at all, and how I would do that. I am currently running Windows 7 as my OS, and an very happy with it, so I am looking to get rid of Vista. I have 2 hard drives. My main one is 75gigs and 10000rpms so I have my OS on it, with all my programs, files and, games on my larger HD. Sorry if this is vague.

Since you want to get rid of vista Im assuming you did an upgrade not a clean install. You now have win 7 ( what build?) on the 75 gig and the remnants of ista on the other. Right? In win 7 is there a folder called windows.old?

befor you do anything backup everything you cant live without just in case.

let me know and we will help walk you through it

You are correct Ken, and I'm running 64bit Windows 7. I'm ready when you are. Pre-thankyou for helping.
