I didn't have any other partitions when I installed Vista on my machine. I am not sure why those partitions are there, but I don't believe they are required to run Vista and with no data in those partitions, I don't see any reason to have them.
Before you go deleting partitions though, what do you mean by "out of the box"?
-New retail hard drive?
-New OEM hard drive?
-Used hard drive?
