I have 2 hard drives in my computer, lets name them driveA, and driveB. On each drive, I had installed windows XP on them. (I had a purpose for it at the time.) After realizing I don't need both drives, I formatted driveB to use a data drive with no OS.

However, the boot record of the drive remains. ex. when I boot up my computer, it allows me to boot from 2 different versions of Windows XP. the first option will give me an error during booting, obviously the formatted drive, and the 2nd option will boot into the proper OS. Is there any way to fix this? to get rid of any occurrences of the first version of windows during the boot up sequence
