i just installed xp home onto a desktop pc that previously had xp pro on it. i assumed that all traces of the pro version would be erased but at boot up i see a black screen asking me to choose which os i want to load, home or pro, from which i have to manually select home.
i tried the pro option and it said files not found so how do i stop it giving this option. presumably its a bios setting?
The best way to resolve this, as suggested above, is to reformat (and partition if you wish) your hard drive and then install xp home. there are lots of free utilities available to help you do this - if you're interested and want chapter and verse post back.
