How do I remove XP Pro from my computer?

By beautyplussuccess ·
I purchased a disk and a license to install Windows 7 Pro. I must remove XP Pro and do a clean download for it to work. I cannot figure out how to do this! Can anyone help me please?

You don't need to

All that is required is to set the BIOS to Boot off the Optical Drive and then insert the 7 Install Disc and restart the system. When you get the prompt to press any key to boot off CD you press a key and follow the prompts.

You can format the drive if required but the one thing you can not do is start XP insert the 7 Install Disc and load 7 from there. Windows can not be running when you start the install process.
