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.
