There should be no problem with deleting E to remove XP, once you have any files you want to save moved off of it. Then you can create a new storage partition there.

If you were booting via the BIOS then there is no Dual Boot menu entry to remove.

If you had added XP from Win7 using EasyBCD then the listing should go away when XP partition is deleted, and if not can be deleted from the Edit Boot Menu tab in EasyBCD from Win7.
