The OP stated this is an old drive used as a backup in his new system, so he won't see a Vista Partition on the drive with Windows 7. Additionally, if it were located on the same disk as Windows 7 and he deleted the partition he would lose his other files as well; since he asked:
"what process should I use to eradicate vista from the drive, without harming any of the files or games I have a run off that drive"
that doesn't sould like it would work out very well.
Maybe I am missing something in your reply. Please let me know if that's the case.
