Need to remove Vista from dual-boot, but Win7 is on a logical partition

Hey guys, new here I want to remove my vista installation from my laptop, but it is currently read as my system partition. I tried using easyBCD to get it changed to my current win7 partition, but unfortunately it is somehow a logical drive partition and so BCD can't move the bootfiles on to it. Does anyone know what I should do from here? I want to lose no data on my current drive if possible. Thanks! Okay, after using partition wizard and easyBCD, I've managed to get this: C: System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition Vista64 (D:smile: Primary Partition Am I safe to delete the Vista partition now? I'm willing to pull the trigger, but I'd feel a lot more assured if one of the veterans here gives me the all clear, much appreciated.

If W7 is now primary and marked "system" you can go ahead and format Vista.
Doing it from Windows (not a booted partition manager CD) is quite safe, because it will simply refuse to let you format anything it needs to keep working.
