Remove Vista from Daul-Boot with 7q

Hi, sorry if I put this in the wrong category, I'm new here! :)

I recently did an install of Windows 7 (a clean install) and accidenlty selected to dual boot somehow (I chose to install 7 on the D drive instead of C, where Vista is installed)

I do not want Vista anymore. How can fix this?

Mark the Windows 7 drive Active in Disk Management,

unplug the Vista drive and either plug its cable into Windows 7 drive or change Win7 drive to be first HDD to boot (after DVD drive) in BIOS,

boot into WIndows 7 DVD>Repair my Computer and run Startup Repair 3 times, rebooting in after each until it starts Windows 7.
