Easily, just use this tutorial to edit the system so that you only load into the new Windows 7 partition.

BCDEDIT - How to Use
Dual Boot - Change OS Name in Windows Boot Manager

After that, just delete the old partition with the Drive Manager found by right clicking My Computer --> Clicking Manage --> Clicking Drive Management found in the list on the left.
