Here is the situtaion, i have installed XP OS on C drive for more than 2 years,
i recently installed win 7 on D drive & 8 on E drive to have to test them out.

Now i need to remove them from my system.
Question: if i formated the D and E drives will XP fall down ?
Do i need to make changes to the boot file before formatting?

is ther a reason you want to remove windows 7 or windows 8 but keep XP cause XP is no longer supported your better off using windows 7 or windows 8

Here comes the XP haters with misinformation. :rolleyes:

Shaga, you can format the or just delete the folders from a booted up XP and you still be able to boot up XP. Just make sure C is your first boot item. If you need to change it just Google EasyBCD. And don't ever delete the Boot folder and other boot files from the root of C.
