When I start up I reciev a black screen requesting which set up of windows I
would like to use. There is a list of three shown. I always chose the first
one and everything is ok.
I did reinstall windows onto the second Drive into the machine and dispense
with the original 'C:" drive installation as there were problems with this
and I wanted to do a clean installation. However all files on the C drive
relating to windows were deleted. How do I remove the other two indications
of a set up?? Suggestions??
Thanks

Under the Advanced tap or System Properties, select Settings for Startup and
recoveries. Change your setting there to fix.

[[You reinstalled Windows XP on your computer thinking it would overwrite
the existing version of Windows XP and now there are two copies when you
boot up. Crap! What to do now? Not to worry, here's the solution.]]
