Post back a screenshot of your full Disk Management map from Vista. We can advise you the exact steps then.

If you still want to get rid of vista, I already posted how to do it earlier in the thread. The fastest way is to boot to XP and erase the vista partition, then restart using your xp install disk to reinstall the xp bootloader. To do that you have to select the repair option from the disk, and the command FIXMBR will finish the task. Otherwise, a simple, clean install of xp will also do the job. But if you don't have an XP install disk I wouldn't even know where to start. Good luck

Windows 7 Ultimate x86-64

Why don't you kill both OS's, install 7 as a clean format, and move on? XP is dead, and Vista is . . . somewhere.
