Default Vista without XP from a dualboot


I'm new here and I was searching google about my problem. I have a dualboot XP-VISTA and the first on IDE HDD and the second on SATA-HDD (so 2 HDD), and now I want to delete XP from my PC and keep the VISTA working normally.

I found the following link on your site:

It looks great, but someone replied with:

"Title pretty much says it all. When I go in to format my xp partition (c:\) it tells me I can't format my system partition. Should I go ahead and do it anyway or what. Please help. I really want XP GONE!"END QUOTE

Well, this is the problem I now have. When I trie to delete XP in VISTA, then it says that it's not possible.

This is the way my 'manage' looks like and if I want to format C:// then it says that it is not possible:

Greetings and thanks,
