Interesting question someone, would reformatting that partition work while one is in the other os, imagining he would like to keep the XP, would he do the following:

Press the "windows botton" with the "R" botton (brings up command bar)
Type in the command bar: diskmgmt.msc (brings up the disk management window)
Format the partition one doesn't want

Ah but there are two problems to this idea he would lose everything in that partition, and have an unused partition. So I imagine he would have to use Patition Magic then, or is there another way?
