I have tried to reload my operating system which failed. I now have on start up a choice of the two. The second failed one starts as first choice unless i stop it in time but always ends in an error. How do I delete this faild system?

Presumably your using XP To remove the faulty line,you need to access boot.ini by

Right-Click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Start up & Recovery and Edit the file in Notepad to get just


[boot loader]


timeout=30


default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS


[operating systems]


multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
