How to uninstall Windows 7

I have windows 7 installed on a other hdd and I don't need this installation any more. Is there any way I could uninstall them?

A formatting of the hard drive will remove windows 7, but .....

Do you have a dual boot setup ? What is the other os there ?

If you can post a snipshot of the maximized disk management window, it will be easy to suggest the further; if anything is needed to remove the bootloader or not.

There is no such way to uninstall an operating system other than formatting the drive/partition that contains the OS . So if the D drive contains any files, copy those in somewhere else, and then format it.

The two OSs are windows 7? Are they both the same build/ version/ bit ? Is it a dual boot setup ? How do you choose which one to boot up ?
All the info are needed to remove the bootloader after removing the installation.
