Uninstalling xp after a dual boot with win 7

Hello all,

This has probably been said already but i am thinking of putting xp home on my pc with a dual boot with win 7. This is mainly because saome of my older prgrams wont run, even in compatibility mode.

Can i uninstall xp home (If needs be) without comprimising win 7.

Thanks

If you install XP to a second partition, you'll need to Add it to the boot menu using EasyBCD 2.0 after installation. Do quick registration to use EasyBCD beta, install, use Add/remove tab, accept boot files, restart to dual Boot menu.

To remove, simply delete XP partition in Win7 Disk Management, if a boot menu entry remains then Remove it using EasyBCD and/or on msconfig>Boot tab.
