I have a 120 gb hdd with four partitions.

i had win xp in drive c. i had to reinstall winxp but somehow by mistake it got installed in drive d.
now even after installing win xp in drive c again and formatting drive d, still i get option of two win xp
at boot time.

Please tell me what changes to make to boot.ini so that i will not get that boot screen of selecting which os.
should i delete the line
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
in the boot.ini file
please help

I know a friend that had this problem, he had to download StyleXP to get rid of it, download that program and there is a setting that resets the .ini file, im sure there is another way but you might as well do it this way.

May look something like this:

[boot loader]
timeout=5
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect


Delete this one: "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect"

PM a copy if you like.
