I was recently infected with SpySheriff on 2 desktops and 1 laptop. After cleaning up the drives with help from here, I rebooted from the WinXP setup disk on the laptop (missing the manufacturers, IBM disk) so used the Medion desktop disk. In doing so I mistakenly installed two copies of WinXP, one half working and the other not. Now the laptop isn't working at all.

Is there any way to uninstall one of the two operating systems if not both and start from scratch with the laptops HD?
