I have 2 xp operating systems on partition. I used instructions from windows
and was able to edit my boot.ini file to boot only prefered os, however I
want to delete old os and can't.
I run %windir% and find old os(non-working) in windows explorer.
Right click and delete. nothing. The delete window comes up for about 4
seconds and then stops.
How can I delete the old xp operating system?
thanks
