remove dual boot configuration

Could you give me the instructions for Windows XP? The msconfig boot tab is different from the Vista one..




Now I don't have an XP machine that's running a dual boot but... Unlike Vista or Windows 7, you need to edit your BOOT.INI file in order to blow away the Windows 7 boot info from login.


From XP

Click Start, Run (Or click Windows Key + R)


Now Type in notepad c:\boot.ini


Notepad will open up. Delete the line under [Operating Systems] that references your Windows 7 Install.


Be sure however BEFORE you do this that your Windows XP install is your Default partition. Here is mine for example:


[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /PAE /NoExecute=OptIn


Make sure DEFAULT= points to your XP install otherwise when you reboot you going to have issues since you just deleted the line for windows 7 and that's your default ;)
