Thankyou so much everything is working great, and ive learned a lot. Ive decided to keep using windows 7, and would totally like to remove window xp, as this dosent seem to be working at all, just a blank screen, so its a waste of space, and im not sure how to do this.
Thanks again Jenny

Hello again Jenny.



Have you backed-up everything from the "D: Every ... " drive yet as we can't proceed until you do; to convert the C: to a Primary partition will destroy everything on D: so you have to make backups to external media of that data if you don't want to lose it.

Hello again Jenny.



If there's nothing left on the Hard Disk Drive you care about; have a look at this first tutorial at the link below; do the clean all (secure erase) that will over-write everything on the HDD and then use Step Two #2 to create a single 100GB partition to install Windows 7 to then after the install completes you can create a second partition to use as storage from the additional unallocated space.
