How to Remove XP From an XP/Vista Dual Boot

1. Restart your computer with either Vista CD 1 or your Vista DVD in the drive, if you don't you will be prompted to pick an operating system. Once into setup, choose repair console from the first screen (not install).Now the last option is for a DOS prompt, pick that. A DOS prompt appears, and type the following:

bootrec.exe /fixmbr
*this will essentially remove XP from the Vista bootloader
bootrec.exe /fixboot
*this will check that XP is no longer present in Vista's boot.ini
Restart and  there will be no more XP
