    I just formatted my 2nd hard drive which had xp on it as well as my first. I only use it for storage now and not an OS. but when I boot my computer it's still asking me to choose an OS. how can I get that removed? and just automatically load my one and only os?

    thanks

    Start->Run->MSCONFIG-> select BOOT.INI click check all boot paths. You can change the timeout to 0.

    OR

    Original XP boot.ini

    [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
