    I have xp,vista and ubuntu 8.04 on my pc. the boot order is like :

    ubuntu boot loader gives the option to switch to ubuntu or windows

    choosing windows, vista comes up with its boot loader to switch to xp or vista.

    what i want to do is to use windows 7 on my pc without disturbing the boot order & I want to wipe out vista.


    what to do ?
