Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Did you install windows 7 from the desktop of xp? If the boot record is on the xp drive then you wont be able to delete it.

If you install XP and Win 7 separately, you can set the Win 7 partition as 'active' by going to 'Computer--Right click--Mange--Disk Management', then you can delete XP.
However, if you install Win 7 based on XP (like a software under XP), that might be complicated.
