    Which Os to boot to? (WXpHe fully patched)

    In the process of partitioning and formatting drives c and d, after the initial boot process I can select 1 of 2 window to load from. Actually, I managed to delete all files off drive d (what I wanted) but there must be a registry or other entry I can delete to get rid of the second windows log on? Help will be appreciated please.

    Were you set up to Dual Boot from two OS's from drive C and D?

    Take a look at the BOOT.INI file in the C drive. It's only a text file and can be edited with Notepad or similar.

    Single boot should look something this:

    [boot loader]
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Micros oft Windows XP Home Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Sounds like you might have 2 instances of Windows installed. What, exactly, does the log on screen say ??
