I have installed windows xp twice and when window is booting I am prompt to pick which of the window I want to use. How can I delete one of of these windows xp installed.

You need to edit the boot.ini file.

Start, Run, type

msconfig

and click OK.

What is listed under boot.ini?

or enter

fdisk /mbr

in the start/run box. note the space before the /, it is important

that should rewrite the master boot record and solve the double entry (caution, if you dual boot another OS as well, dont do this as you would lose any dual boot options.)

best of luck

or do as VoG™ says and press the "check all boot paths" button
