So, when I turn on my computer it automatically asks me which operating system I would like to start.

It says this:

"Choose Operating System:

Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Highlight your option and press ENTER.

Well, the operating system I USE is the top one. How do I disable this Dual boot so that it get's rid of the second instance of Windows XP that apparently exists on the Hard drive?

Thanks!

Try this:

Go to Start then click on Run... Type in msconfig and click OK

In the resulting System Configuration Utility window, click on the BOOT.INI tab.

Click the Check all Boot Paths button to, well, check all boot paths:
