Delete Windows 8 on a Duel boot system

Some time ago I had installed Windows 8 on my desktop that has Windows 7 pro. on it originally. I had done it the duel boot way. Now that I have had my time with Windows 8 pro. I would like to remove it. I have not really found an exact way of doing this as of yet and I do not want to have to install my original O.S. all over again if I don't have to. Anyone have any ideas on how to completely remove this Windows 8 on my duel boot system without installing my original Windows 7 again? Thanks in advance with any help that I may get on this matter.

Hey there Brink, I wanted to say first of all thank you for your quick response back to me on my issue I had, and second of all I wanted to say is I have been working on this issue non stop since yesterday and figured out the answer to my problem and resolved it without much of a problem. I figured the more I worked on it eventually I would find the solution to it and I did. Although this site here has the best answers to whatever issues I have and will be using it again. Thank you again for your response and have a great day! Now I do not know how to mark this as resolved issue.
