Easiest way to keep XP and move it on drive C in dual boot?

Hi guys,
I ve managed to install Win XP after Windows 7 installation as in tutorial. Win 7 is on Drive C and Win XP on drive G. Then Ive decided to only keep the XP version and move it on drive C (currently occuied by Win 7).
What is the easiest and safest way to do this?

Thanks
Cfb

Please post back a screenshot of your full Disk Management drive map with listings, using Snipping Tool in Windows 7 Start Menu.

Hello cfb1972, welcome to Seven Forums!



The only way to get XP to be C: is to actually install it to the first physical partition of/on the Hard Disk Drive, the drive letter can't be changed and if you try you will destroy the installation, you are stuck with the letter it now has unless you want to reinstall.


Post a snip and we will see if it can be moved at all.
