To remove wimdows XP

Posted: 01-26-2009, 01:28 PM
Hi,

I had installed windows XP without removing the earlier installed. When I
start the PC, there is an option to choose which operating system.

I would like know how to remove the earlier installed windows XP.

Thank you
ME

Edit C:\Boot.ini (but be careful)... take a backup copy as well

Start\Search\Boot.ini click on boot.in and it will open up in Notepad and remove the
line from there by highlighting the line for the wrong OS and then hit Delete .
When finished deleting the line in Notepad then go File and Save . Close out
Notepad and Reboot

Always make a back up of the line you are removing just in case you will ever need
to put it back
