Vista / Windows 7 - Dual boot - Bootloader?

OK, I have Vista and Windows 7 installed on two different partitions...

I want to get rid of Vista, and was told to remove the boatloader...

So I'm using "VistaBootPRO", and it presents me with two options...



Which one do I choose?

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong sub-forum...I wasn't sure where to post this.

Here is an artical on removing Vista from a dual boot system John Barnett's Windows Vista Support: Remove Windows Vista from A Dual Boot System Hope this will help.In the artical it refers to going back to a previous version of windows after the loader is deleted, but I don't see why it wouldn't allow a newer version OS install.

That's the exact article I was looking at...but this must be a newer version of the software. Look at a quote from the article below...I see no "apply button"...and which option in the second field should I check?

Quote:
9/ In the Bootloader Maintenance section, Click on the Radio button next to the option marked 'Uninstall the Vista Bootloader (Used to restore Legacy OS) option' and then Click the Apply button
