Looks like you may have 2 copies of XP on your pc did you do a reformat and fresh instal last time?

Click start run type msconfig then click the tab Boot.ini and remove one of the lines. Backup first in case you delete the wrong line, if you do you will not be able to boot into windows. So be aware..

Best advise leave well alone

1. Boot to the desired version of Windows XP you want to keep. Making note
of the position in the boot menu. This will be important when you edit
boot.ini.

2. Open a command prompt * and type "echo %windir%" without the quotes but with the %.
This will give you the current Windows folder you are using.

3. From Explorer, delete the folder containing the installation you want to
remove. The original install folder is usually called Windows and
subsequent folders will be derivatives of Windows or Winnt.

4. From System Properties [Winkey+Pause/Break] > Advanced Tab > Statup and
Recovery > Settings > Edit.

5. Select the Edit button and from notepad, first backup boot.ini, by going
to File; Save As and rename boot.ini. to something like boot.inibak.

6. Remove the line referencing the installation not chosen; you made note
of in step one.

7. Set timeout=0 so the system boots directly into Win XP (you will not get
the boot menu).

8. Save As boot.ini & Exit.

9. Reboot.
