Some programs such as 3Ds Max, Nimbuzz, and VLC player, which were alright earlier, stopped working, and so I reinstalled XP into C drive. However, I gave a new computer name and organization name, and this resulted in creating two my documents folder for each user in C:\Documents and Settings instead of replacing it. For example it was like darkillusions' documents (old one) and dark.BP's documents(new). The old folder was not accessible.
Fortunately later on I learnt how to gain access, and deleted these folders.
But somewhere in between I installed windows in D drive (I have two 40gb hard disks C and D) and tried to format C drive by logging on the XP installation in D drive (which I found later was impossible).
Now this created two XP installations.Both C drive and D drive had XP. So, on bootup I was prompted to choose which installation to start.
I formatted D drive. Now D drive doesnt have XP installed. However the prompt on bootup still shows this removed XP. If I choose this installation it says that <windows root>\system32\hal.dll is missing.
Basically what I want is to remove the prompt to start with the old missing installation.
