After repair now have to choose Operating System
 

Vista Home Prem x64 Raid 1 confi

I had a failure of some sort that caused the system to fail to reboot.
I booted the system from the Vista CD and performed a repair. Now, I a
prompted to choose the Operating System in the in the Boot Manager.
now have 2 files, Windows Vista Home and Windows Vista (tm) Home Premiu
(recovered). If I choose the NON-recovered file the machine will no
boot. If I choose the (recovered) file the machine boots and operate
fine. I went to System maintenance and changed the default boot syste
to the (recovered) file. Now, when I reboot it still goes to the Boo
Manager screen and waits a while before it finally boots to th
(recovered) file

I would like to repair this machine to the way it used to work and no
have the machine go thru the boot manager screen. I would also like t
know how the (recovered) operating system got installed in the firs
place. How can I remove the defective one safely and return system t
normal state

::Any potential help will be greatly appreciated,:

When you changed the default you also had the option to specify the time to
wait.

How, precisely, did you "perform a repair?" Because Vista isn't
capable of performing a repair installation in the manner of Win2K and
WinXP, I suspect that what you actually did was create what's commonly
known as a parallel installation. Therefore, you now have two Vista
installations, the new one functioning, and the original installation
non-functioning installation.

Hi,

Run msconfig from the start/search line and on the boot tab remove the
unwanted entry.

When you repaired Vista boot manager, you placed the Windows Vista
(tm) Home Premium (recovered) entry in the BCD. You can use Vista's
bcdedit utility to remove the Windows Vista Home entry.
