I have a Dell Optiplex GX 260, that I bought used at a thrift store. It has XP installed. my old Toshiba laptop bit the dust, so I decided to transfer my Fry's-bought copy of Vista Ultimate to it. I am not dual-booting in the usual way, I have a seperate SATA drive plugged into a SATA card plugged into my sole PCI slot. I (of course) installed Vista on the SATA drive. I have since changed my mind, and want to remove the SATA drive from the system. (btw, I don't have a copy of XP)

However, I have now have to keep it as-is, until I can find a way to safely remove the dual boot option. This is a copy of my msconfig file. I suspect that editing it will fix my problem.
Multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)(0)partition(1)windows=Microsoft windows XP "home edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptOut/sos

Thank you for any help!
