If you remove the system partition, you will have to boot with the Vista
disk and do a startup repair. The system partition is the active one that
the mbr on the booted hard drive looks to for the bootloader files. You will
need to reload the boot files and redesignate the volume housing Vista as
the active one (you can do this in disk manager prior).
