    If I understand you correctly, you already have Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 SP1 set up in dual boot mode in the same hard drive that's divided in 2 partitions.

    If you do a clean re-install of Windows XP SP3 in the same partition that it's currently in, Windows 7 SP1 will fail to boot in the other partition, and you will also have to re-install it.

    The older operating system needs to be installed first and the newer operating system needs to be installed second.

    Is there a particular reason why you want to wipe out Windows XP SP3 and then re-install it?
