Deleting Partition w/ Dual booted OS

Installed 7 Home Premium 32 bit on a partition, now i found out all my drivers, at least the important ones are 64 bit only. How do i remove the partition safely?

What were the reasons you preferred 32 bit again? Often if your OEM only supports 64 bit they tell you there are no 32 bit drivers, but they can still be found on the Device's Support Downloads webpage or doing a Google search - after you've run several rounds of Windows Updates (optional) which may deliver them itself.

Since you've already installed we can help you find the drivers if you want to give it a test drive for awhile longer. Don't be scared off by OEM claims about 32 bit drivers.
