    I have two hard drives, i was running win2k off one, but then decided to upgrade to XP. I installed XP onto the other hard drive, but then deleted all the 2000 files...
    Why does it still give me the option to load 2000?
    Have i missed a file or something?

    Matt.

    You need to edit the boot menu and delete the entry for Windows 2000. Select Start, right click My Computer, select Properties and Advanced tab, click Settings button for Startup and Recovery, and the Edit button for Startup options. Then delete the reference for Windows 2000 and reboot to test it.

    Good luck.
