remove XP keeping Vista

Hi
I had Xp on my system and used it for some time, Wife bought me new
PC, it's got everything including Vista Ultimate, I took it off and put Xp
on, then I decided to put Vista on the other partition and give it a few
weeks to see how it went, well I know what a lot of people say about Vista,
but to be honest, I have got used to it and it's ok now, once I got rid of a
few things like UAC etc, due to the PC specs it runs very well and I have
decided to keep it, that's where my problem starts.

I installed XP first then Vista, set up a dual boot, but now I want to
remove Xp, is it possible to remove XP, and make the "D" (which is a
partition of a 360 gig drive) the "C" part of the drive, what I am trying
to do is keep vista without having to re-install and all the setting up that
comes with it.

Thanks

Gordon

Partly depends on how you installed Vista. If you installed so that Vista
shows as on D drive when in Vista, the answer is no as Mark says. If it
shows as C in Vista, and if you kept the two systems separate, then you
could do it with minimum problems. You will still have the drive as D in
the BIOS, but I assume you are just going to expand the drive to encompass
the whole drive. Post back if this meets your situation.
