Boot into Windows 7, select Start, right-click Computer, and select Properties. Click the Advanced system settings link in the left pane. On the Advanced tab, under "Startup and Recovery," click the Settings button. Set the "Default operating system" to XP. Then uncheck Time to display list of operating systems.

Click OK twice, then reboot.

Install and then launch EASEUS Partition Master. Right-click the Windows 7 partition and select Delete. Confirm your request with OK. Resize the partition by EASEUS Partition Master, making it as large as available space will allow. Click OK when done.

Within a few minutes, you'll have what you started with: a one-boot PC with your old, preferred Windows version.
