I note your lack of the word 'please':

Puts you in a very 'authoritative' position...

1. cmd as admin
2. msconfig (enter)
3. Move to boot, locate the Win xp and set to default.
4. REBOOT-

after Reboot
1. do the same steps ( 1,2,3) above.
located win7 file, click 1 time move down an delete the entry.

REBOOT

OK now you have not option to boot into Win7.
move to the partition where you have Win 7. (FORMAT totally not quick).
reboot.

No more Win7, only XP.
Now unless you do exactly as I stated above. I am not responsible.
You are the BOSS I can only recommend what you should do.
If this works please return and SAY THANKS.
If not I and my pirate crew shall sail the world wide to find you and you will walk the plank.

Ray, why do you want to install Win7 which is the future? Maybe we can help you work out any issues as most of us have been beta testers for more than a year and have likely already dealt with the issue(s).

But if you want to know for sure you are uninstalling without any effect on the other OS, please post back a screenshot of your Win7 Disk Management drive map and listings, using Snipping Tool in Start Menu and attaching file using paper clip in reply box. Label what is where and tell us exactly what you want.
We can then give you the exact steps.
