How can I edit the boot file?

  Kanzel 19:31 29 Mar 2010

When I upgraded to Windows 7 I foolishly unistalled Vista with out first unistalling my ubuntu 8.10 OS. Ubuntu will not run and having deleted it from its partition and reinstalled the new version 9.10, I have two ubuntu's listed when I boot up. I also have XP Pro, in its own partition, which runs OK.

My question is how can I edit the boot file to remove the entry for the ubuntu that does not work?

Download EasyBCD, scroll down click here and get the instructions click here

After installing it, go to the Add/Remove Entries Tab to change which systems you want/have.

You need to edit a file called boot.ini if you have windows installed probaly the easiest way to access it / modify it is through msconfig

Many thanks

c4rm0 no not in Windows 7. That only contains Ubuntu if it was installed via its self.
