    Hello,

    I have 2 hardrives, both with windows xp installed

    I want to get rid of windows in one of the hardrives, can i do this by just deleting all the files that are related to windows? i.e winnt folder, documents n settings etc...?

    No. The only way to remove Windows properly is to format the hard drive. To do this Click Start > Run and type diskmgmt.msc then right click on the partition you want to remove and format it back to NTFS.
