    Move system partition from unwanted OS (WinXP) to current OS (Win10)

    Hi TenForums! I am loving Windows 10 and I want to remove Windows XP from my dual-boot configuration (and remove the whole dual-boot thing completely) but it also acts as the system partition, so I guess it's not as straight-forward as I had hoped. Is there a way to make my Windows 10 partition the system partition?

    Personally I would remove the disk and boot up. If it works just delete the partitions and you have a clean disk. If it don't boot repair it from the windows boot disk.
