Two operating systems

  bruno 10:17 06 Jul 2007

I have just had to reinstall XP Home.It has all gone well except for one thing.I did something wrong, and now at start up I have a choice between XP Home and XP Home.How do I delete this?I did it a couple of years ago but have forgotten how.Old age,you know.It is not a big deal as it only means hitting enter,but I would still like it gone.

Right click 'My Computer' and select Properties.
On the 'Advanced' Tab click the bottom of the 3 'settings' buttons (Startup/Recovery).
In the dialogue that opens, take the tick out of the box 'Time to display list of operating systems' ...That should fix it. You also have the option to edit the boot.ini file in there, but that needs to be done correctly, or PC won't start.
