How do you get rid of a second boot option? I ran two Windows XP, one on Partition C: on drive 1, and another on partition D: on drive 2. I want to get rid of the D: system. I have deleted the windows folder on D:, but expect I need to delete something else to avoid the invitation during boot to choose one of the systems

Start - run - type msconfig press ok

boot.ini tab click button check paths

ths will delete the path to the system on D:

next time you boot there will be no choice it will boot straight to windows on C: drive

Set a restore point first.

Go to System Properties and select the 'Advanced' tab.

Select 'Startup Recovery' Settings.

Click on 'Edit' and remove the reference to the second boot option.

Reboot et voila!
