Bootloader question [partioned HDD]

i currently have a hdd with vista and W7 on it

vista was on it originally and i shrunk this partition to allow me to put 7 on

my question is, when i come to delete vista, will the computer boot straight intop w7?

does w7 have its own bootloader or do i need to do some sort of transfer?

thanks

It will be fine.

If it still has that question at the boot, you can DL Easy BCD and use that to scrap the option panel.
