Help on erasing Vista

Recently I decided to install Windows 7 Ultimate to replace my Vista install on my other partition. I would like to get rid of Vista so is it safe to go into msconfig, delete it from boot options and then format the partition? Thanks

...oh and don't format the system reserved partition.
