    I accidently started installing windows again but cancelled it, but i have the choose thing on boot now.

    I don't know which line to delete, I can only find one windows folder.

    When I boot I choose the second one in THAT list, thats the one i want to keep, but I don't know if it's in the same order on the boot.ini as the list it gives when i start the computer.



    (Below is just to make sure were straight on which one =P)
    The one I want to keep is the second one in the list that i get when i boot the computer.


    "

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

    Well, you can fire up MSCONFIG and test the boot paths. They should be presented in the menu in the order they appear in the file.
