If you'd like more space on C then you can install Partition Wizard to XP to Extend C using the space you deleted from E. The Logical extended partition should shrink accordingly. How to extend partition easily with Partition Wizard - video help.

If there's something else you'd rather do, let us know and we'll give you the steps.

If you want to get rid of E, use the bootable CD of Partition Wizard.

If you want both OS's then try installing EasyBCD Download Registration - NeoSmart Technologies to add XP on the Add OS tab save and reboot.

If you want to recovery XP as your only OS then run an XP Repair Install.
