    I had recently a dual boot on my laptop- XP Pro and 2000.

    I have formatted 2000 out from inside XP but now I still have a boot option for 2000 at start-up.

    How do I remove that option and still keep the drive space that I wish to keep files on, so in the event of OS crash I still have the partition with my important files?

    Thanks in advance, J

    Post the contents of your boot.ini file and we will show you how to edit it.

    Click on Start and right click on My Computer. Click on Properties. Click the Advanced tab. Click on the Settings button under the Startup and Recovery section. On the Startup and Recovery window click on the Edit button. Remove the line that references the missing Windows2000 installation. Click File and then Save. Click OK twice and then reboot.
