    Well, I a looooooooong while ago, I started a windows XP setup (because I had had problems getting XP set up correctly; bad disk n' such) but since then I've gotten XP to work correctly. HOWEVER, the problem is is that whenever I start up, it wants me to choose my OS. The two options are: Windows XP Professional (the one that works) and Windows XP professional Setup (The one that it chooses on default, so I have to be watching the computer start up or it errors out and resets due to a missing hal.dll) How would I go about removing the Setup one? I've tried to find the boot file, and I've deleted all the ntoskrnl's except for the main one, and windows still works, but the Setup thing is still there. Help me, please... ^^;

    Right click my computer and select properties, then on the advanced tab select settings on the start up and recovery section. You can set which OS you want as default from there.
