Advanced Help Needed with XP Bootloader edit

Basically, I have 2 identical but different bootloader entries and only one is needed/used. I had to install a copy of Windows for someone else on my PC but onto his HD because he was having problems with his optical drives.

Long story short, it left a entry that I would now like to remove. Here’s what I have from the bootloader entry:

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS=“Microsoft Windows XP Professional” /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS=“Microsoft Windows XP Professional” /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

The top one is the one I need to remove. I just need to know if all I have to do is edit it out and all is well or if I need to make any other changes.


maybe these articles will help:

Are you sure its the top one you want to remove-this happens when you install xp over xp. What I do is edit out the second one_save and restart your computer . good luck.

Thanks for the help guys, got it right now.:smiley:
