In disk management, make sure your Vista partition is set to "Active" and it has all necessary boot files. bootmgr, the Boot folder, etc. (they will be hidden so you need to enable "show hidden files" to see them)

If so, you can just format the partition Windows 7 is on. Provided that there is no data on there that you wish to save.
