    nope, no XP cd in the drive. i think what it did was copy some files onto the hard-drive, most likely in my c:\windows folder. gotta find a way to get rid of the XP setup crap

    Go to system properties>advanced>startup and recovery. Make sure the install you want is selected as the default os; clear check mark from the "display list of os"
