This article here explains how (http://www.lytebyte.com/2009/05/06/remove-or-uninstall-windows-7-beta-from-dual-boot-and-clean-install-windows-7-rc/) - just be careful - I did it this way on two PC's dual booting Vista/W7 RC.

One went OK, and booted into Vista fine, the other turned to custard and nothing booted.

Are you going to install W7 RTM where the current trial is, or remove it completely and stay with Vista ?

I want to remove it completely.I loaded it onto my D drive,but don't want reformat that as there is other stuff on that drive,so if I can just take it out of the boot menu,then I should be able to just delete W7,hopefully anyway.Thanks
