Uninstall Windows 7 on dual-boot XP system

I installed Windows 7 Beta by creating a separate partition so that I could dual-boot with XP, but I have decided to uninstall Windows 7.

The only uninstall instructions I could find for a dual-boot system with XP are here. I'm confused about Step 7.

I am using EASEUS Partition Manager. When I try to format the partition I had created, it asks for a label and a cluster size. I'm not sure what I should label it, and I have no idea what cluster size means. It has options ranging from 512 bytes to 64 kb, with 4kb selected as default. What settings should I choose?

Also, what happens after I format it? Ideally, I'd like to merge the partition I created (F:\) back into my main, original C:\ drive. How would I do this?

Thanks so much for your help!

Just use the Format tool in XP to format the Win 7 partion then use your partition manager to expand your C drive back to full size. You only need to do a quick format. No need for a full one. The quick one will get rid of all the files and when you expand the partition it will expand just fine.

Thanks for the response!

I formatted the F: drive I had partitioned before, so now all of that space is unused.

How would I go about expanding the C: drive? I tried to "Resize/Move", but it would not let me make it any larger. Would I have to delete the F: drive first? Is it safe to do so?

EDIT: Got it to work. Thanks again!!!
