Can i format my one disk partition ?

Specs: Windows Vista, 4 gb
Hello,

My system has windows Vista Enterprise With Service Pack1. I had partitioned the hard drive. And later had installed Windows Server 2003 as i had to work on Sharepoint 2007. So, its Drive C (original with the Vista) Drive E: ( Server 2003).
Now the boot.ini is in drive E otherwise it wont be possible to install server. now how will i get boot.ini back to vista? i want to format E Drive and uninstall Server as i dont need it any more and it has taken lot of space and i need space too. if i format drive E, then my system wont start. Can any1 help me?

Thanks,
Paris

Does not sound like you created a multiboot. Post your server boot.ini for review.

Hello,

Thanks for the reply..

the boot.ini looks like this..

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINDOWS

[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard" /fastdetect

Thanks,
Paris
