Dual Boot Problem

  hydincymru 16:26 05 Jan 2009

I have two internal drives and following a crash (which turned out to be a hardware fault now fixed) i tried to repair Xp with the recovery CD. What happened was the CD loaded a copy of Xp on the second D drive so when i booted up i have two choices. i formatted and reinstated a good Xp OP system on the C drive then formatted the second D drive hoping the dual boot choice would disappear. However it is still there. I have edited the Bios Cmos to boot off one disc or a CD Rom. Can anyone help me tp get rid of the dual boot choice at startup.

Thanks in advance

You need to edit the boot.ini file.

Hi alan2273,

Thanks for the reply. I followed your link and found there were two entries int default operating system box. Just to be on the safe side I only amended the time to the top one but my systen now boots straight into the C Drive. I have two lines ending in fast detect with one having /NoExecute=Optin. Which one is it safe to delete?
Thanks once again
