You will need to make your Logical Partitions to Primary partitions.
Have read of this tutorial:
Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD
If you go this way, make sure you backup all your DATA.

If you do, Repost a screenshot from Win XP & Windows 7.

Hello jimjo16, welcome to Seven Forums!

You need to use Option One of this tutorial theog linked above to convert the Windows 7 D: partition to a Primary partition so it can independently host the System boot files, an Extended partition / Logical drive can't host them, only a Primary partition can.

Once you post back another snip with the Windows 7 as a Primary partition we'll give you the next steps to completely remove XP.

As good and reliable a program as Partition Wizard is, I would not trust the installed version for the operation you need, use the boot CD as suggested and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

First download the Partition Wizard Bootable Disk (PWBD) ISO file to the desktop, be sure to get the PWBD and not the installed version; scroll down to see the download link for the Bootable CD ISO file at this link below.

Then use ImgBurn to burn the ISO to a CD, at no greater than 4x speed with a verify; it was designed for use and works best from a CD rather than a DVD; then boot the created CD to make the changes, it doesn't take any input from the user to setup, just relax and let it load.
