If C: is the system partition (meaning it contains the boot files and is the
active partition), then you cannot remove it without rendering the system
unbootable. You would have to first change the other partition to be the
active one, then boot the Vista DVD and do a startup repair to rewrite the
boot files to it. Only then will you be able to delete the original.
