Have just restored a pc and now whenever it boots up I have to choose which operating system i want (both wondows xp) I know I have solved this before in the past but cannot remember how. Can anyone help??

The simplified way is to goto RUN, enter MSCONFIG, select BOOT.INI and select check all boot paths. If a path is not valid, it will give the option to remove it, if both are valid, make a copy of Boot.ini and rename it boot.bak.Remove the line that contains the 'wrong' path and reboot.

To find Boot.ini (for copying) you will need to goto search and select system files and hiddem files.
