Boot into XP. Right click My Computer, Properties, Advanced tab, Startup and Recovery, click Settings. Click the Edit button. This will open the boot.ini file in Notepad.

Edit it to read:

[boot loader]



[operating systems]

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect

C:\="Microsoft Windows ME"

Click File, Save. Exit Notepad. Back in Computer Properties, click OK, OK until you exit it. Restart computer.

I have assumed, from what you posted, that XP is on the second partition of your hard disk.

You might also want to look for the temporary installation folder(s) of your aborted installation. It might be at C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT If you see it, and you're not proceeding with the installation anyway, you can delete it.
