i have a small problem

ive just installed a fresh copy of xp haome on a dell laptop and its seems to be ok "BUT"

when i boot it up i have to choose from the xp home that i put on or xp pro which was already on the laptop is there anyway i can get rid of the pro so that it boots u straight away instead of me having to choose ???

You need to choose the format volume option during the install proccess to clear what is already on there.

Do you have TWO operating systems on your lappy or just TWO options when booting up..

just 2 when it boots up

it's a dell which ma sister bought that had xp pro on it and i changed it xp home

you have to edit the boot.ini remove the line that has xp pro in it, the link shows you how...
