booting help(can't think of a suitable subject)
I had xp installed on drive c but due to some viruses, spywares etc, i had to reinstall xp. i did it in a different directory (drive D).and deleted the contents of the old xp on C. Now when i boot i am asked to select an os from the menu showing both options as xp. I'd like to remove the other option. What am i supposed to do.98% of the people using internet have started or forwarded "chain mails". If you are one of the 98%, Die a horrible death.

You can edit boot.ini file, so as to remove the option to boot to XP that was in C:\ Drive.
1] Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2] On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
3] Under System Startup, click Edit.
Generally, the Boot.ini looks like this (in your case):-
multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windo ws XP Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
In the default field, make partition (2) so that it points to D:\ Drive.http://swatrant.blogspot.com/
