Unwanted second O.S.

Win XP Pro.
In order to recover from the BLAST virus I reinstalled windows on D: (original on C:).

I am now left with a screen at atart up, offering me two operating systems (both XP), the first is automaticaly chosen by time delay.

1/ How can I get rid of the unwanted O.S. and all the rubish that is probably still lingering with it.

2/ How do I then get rid of the start up selection screen?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I don't know about getting rid of OS but i can tell you how to sort out the start up
Right click my computer
Click properties
click advanced tab
Then click the settings button under startup/recovery
there is a drop down box with default op system
select the required op
and click OK
hope this helps
