Microsoft calls C drive the first drive that windows has bootable files on. The problem is when you dual boot. Each one calls a different C drive.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

As above, you need to go by drive size to confirm which drive is which. If you go into Disk Manager within Windows 7, you will see the drives and their sizes. The drive shown as C within Windows 7 is the drive that Windows 7 is installed on. If you have only one other partition, then that is your XP drive (if there is a very small drive (in MB), then this is your boot partition so leave it). If you have not actually been randomly deleting files on your Windows 7 drive, you just need to then delete the proper partition from here and then use msconfig and remove the boot list for XP. If you have already been deleting files, system files, and program files (and messing up your registry) in your Windows 7 installation, then you should just backup any personal files that remain, and use the Windows 7 installation DVD, delete ALL partitions and begin again with a clean install.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
