Well I fired the new system up today and during the install of XP pro, I screwed up and installed it on both partitions of my hard drive.

So I formatted the drive that shouldn't have goten xp loaded on it, but now the system thinks it is a dual boot setup.

If I choose the correct version at boot everything runs perfect.

My question is, how do I get the system to stop thinking it is a dual boot setup?

Edit the boot.ini to only show the OS you want.

You'll need to know about this file before editing. Please make sure you know what you're doing...
