I have a dual boot of vista and xp. After I choose xp it takes me to yet another "dual boot" of 2 xp's, in which the 2nd one doesnt work. I want to get rid of that 2nd one (which is a "ghost" boot to one of my attempts to install xp before).
How do I erase that second non existant xp? THrough erasing a line in boot.ini , or something? :thumbsup: I don't really know much about it.
I did re-format the drive where the xp installed, so, I believe it is somwhere else.
EasyBCD and VistaBoot from within vista show only to entries 1 for vista, and another 1 for xp, none for the second "ghost" xp.

The boot.ini file is the place to start.

If you can post what your looks like...just open it in XP, copy the contents and paste them into your next post.
