    This should work:
    1. Boot your computer in to Windows XP.
    2. Ensure you have the Windows 7 DVD image emulated or in the DVD drive.
    3. Go to “Start” and “Run”. Type in “E:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force” (without quotes, and replacing E: with the drive letter of your Windows 7 DVD).
    4. Restart the computer, and you will notice the boot selection menu is gone.
    5. Format the partition/drive where you had Windows 7 installed.
    6. Remove two files (Boot.BAK & Bootsect.BAK) on your XP drive’s root folder (C, these were backup files of your previous bootloader, now no longer useful.
    7. Optional: Restart to ensure it still works.

    ...Actually it works 100% :p
