Pc is a Packard bell running xp pro
well here is my headache of a problem.
I need to get rid of an extra boot options. i say this in the meaning that i have two os when i boot up Windows XP Pro - the existing OS and Windows XP Home the one i upgraded from.
the boot screen goes something like this from memory
Please select the operating system to start:
Windows XP pro
Windows XP home
Use and to move the highlight to your choice
Press ENTER to choose.
Seconds until highlighted choice will be started automatically: 29
I tried to edit the boot.ini file but as far as i can tell i can only see one OS.
Here is the file.
[boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn C:\ = "Microsoft Windows"
Also i think this may have some thing to do when my hard drive failed and my pc would not boot at all. I tried to rebuild the MBR or whatever its called..
I used a file recovery program to get some files back after i had reinstalled. and i think (cus it was a while back now) i undeleted a partition or unhid on the hard drive so now i have a /C being the drive my computer is on now and /D being called backup so i think i need to get rid of /D some how, All though i have a feeling /D is the packard bell utility for when you want to restore the pc?? Perhaps i just need to hide it again ? But i'am really struggling with this lol any help is great fully received
