after managing to get my friends Fujitsu Scaleo pc restored, by using the supplied XP restore CD I now get what I think is called a Dual Boot problem.
When switching on PC and starting/booting up it stops and ask's which do you want to start.
It gives you the option of Windows XP Home edition Or windows XP Home edition. Yes the same os but two options which I say is a dual boot.
So how can I get rid of the second boot of windows XP home safely ?
Also a very merry Chrimbo Christmas to all PCA readers, the PCA Forum readers and users and the PCA staff who make the magazine and forum what it is today. No doubt all of you agree excellent forum. Wot a Plug Eh. Not forgetting the FE.
It's something to do with the boot.ini file but I lack the knowledge to advise. However it now appears you have 2 XP installations. I thought that using the recovery CD would have formatted the drive before installing XP again.
ps.if your copy of xp was pre installed be aware that doing the above will mean that in the event of a error stopping you from booting into windows you will now have no access to the recovery console as its listed in the choices in the screen you want to disable.
