I just installed windows XP twice on the same HD. Everytime I boot my computer it asks which OS to boot. I would like to remove one, can anyone help me??

Thanks, Sam

I know it was just reviewed how to remove a dual boot. I just need one question answered.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect

which one of those O/S should I remove? I can not tell which one is the one I use.

Restart the computer and choose the first one..........if it loads appropriately, restart again and choose the second one.......if it loads, just delete the second one ;)

Of course if either don't load completely, then you've nailed it.


In any event, please don't duplicate post....I'll merge both of your threads.

They are in order.

You get the boot menu right?

You can choose from the first one or the second one, correct?

Test both and see if one fails.
