After that i installed XP Pro... Now when i reboot my computer it asks me which one i would like to start up in.. I have 3 working operating systems on this computer. :eek: All I want is XP Pro, how can i delete these others?? Thank you all very much for your time! Em

    Look at your boot.ini file it should look like this to not prompt

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

    The only way to safely remove any left over traces would be to rebuild.
