1 Microsoft XP setup
2 Windows

Look for a file on the root directory of c: hard drive call boot.ini

you will need to eit that file.

You may also find a hidden temporary folder on C: where XP Setup put all the installation files. If it's not there then Setup probably deleted it when you cancelled. Anyway, open boot.ini with notepad and delete the Windows XP Setup entry and save it. Next time you restart it should be gone.
