G'day,I recently tried to fix a few probs by doing a repair install but only
managed to install XP again.So now I have 2 O/S's.Uninstall doesn't appear in
add/remove programs and repair isn't on the disc when I boot from CD.Any help
is greatly appreciated.

Are both OS installed in the same partition?

Hi,

Uninstall wouldn't appear. That option would only be present if it were an
upgrade from a Win9x installation. Basically, you would boot into the
installation you want to keep, then delete the system folders of the one you
didn't want. You can remove any extra boot options by running msconfig, and
on the boot.ini tab click the button to check all boot paths.

The actual "Repair" option is later on in the install process. Here's a link
to the procedure, it's worked well for me many times :)
