Hello vkash, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!
No. When you remove the "XPs", you will still have in place the "Windows Boot Loader" and so will not need to restore the "boot code" in the MBR. Most likely, as you say XP3 was installed first, Windows Seven put its boot files in the XP3 partition. So when you remove XP3, you will also remove the Windows Seven boot files. One way to correct this is after removing the "XPs", do a "Startup Repair" (you may need to do the repair more than once to fix everything). This will reinstall your Windows Seven boot files into your Windows Seven partition (assuming there is only this partition left) and allow booting into your Windows Seven again. Startup Repair
