Windows 7: Remove XP from dual boot

Remove XP from dual boot

After reading a number of posts, I think I have the steps but would appreciate some hand holding. Here is my current config from disk manager

[IMG]file:///C:/Users/Scott/Desktop/Capture.PNG[/IMG]1. XP is on drive 0 which is the active drive
2. Win 7 is on drive 2.

First boot win 7
Then go to disk manager and make disk 2 the active drive-this should make disk 0 not active.
Then use easybcd to reinstall the bootloader and rewrite mbr
Reformat drive 0

Am I close?
