Windows 7: Help with removing a duel boot Windows install (only want 7) HELP!

Help with removing a duel boot Windows install (only want 7) HELP!

Hello, I once tried to duel boot 7 and Xp (it did not work). I now have two options at boot, one of them being an earlier version of Win (that does not work) but I only want 7. The Xp install did not go through correctly because a scrached disc. Is it possible to accomplish this w/o re installing 7 completely?
