A dual boot that wont go away.
 
HI,
i have one hard drive with 3 partitions. I had XP Home on drive C. Later i installed XP Pro on drive E. Then I decided to remove XP Pro. I edited out that OS , in the boot ini . I deleted the contents of drive E. I tought that would eliminate the dual boot window, but i still get the option to select XP HOME or WINDOWS DEFAULT. Is there a way to boot straight into Windows.

Thank You

I solved my problem, i re edited the boot ini and deleted the 30 seconds delay. I do not see the duall boot window anymore.

How do I re edit the boot ini that you did to get rid of XP boot 30 secs option

ahh, a reasonably simply question :)

right click my computer and select properties.
choose advanced tab
under Start up and Recovery click settings
Set the Time to dispaly list of operating systems to the desired value.
-if 0 is used this menu will be skipped, which is what i believe you are looking for.

let us know how you make out.
