Windows 7 logical drive.

I wanted to know if there was any way i could make windows 7 my only operating system. Currently i have a dual boot with xp and 7. On disk management xp is listed as D: (System,Active,Primary Partition) and 7 is listed as C: (Boot,Page File,Crash Dump,Logical Drive). Is there any way to delete windows xp and have windows 7 be the primary partition without reinstalling it. I already moved all of my data from xp to windows 7. I had hoped to delete all of the data on XP and incorporate the newly unallocated space into windows 7.
