Okay, so I installed my friends copy of XP on my machine, only his Key was already registered, so I formatted that HDD to erase it. (note also that I installed XP after my Win2000 Pro). Now, whenever I start my PC up, it wants to give the the choice of either Windows XP, or Win2kPro. This is getting annoying. I tried editing my Boot.ini in my Win2000 directory and deleting the WINXP selection, but its still there. I have run out of ideas. I even got into the registry, but couldnt find anything.

Any more Ideas? I know someone here must know what to do!

go start then right click my computer and go to properties

click on the advanced tab then click the settings button under start up and recovery. you have ur boot.ini options there. you can remove them manually by going edit, or just change the timer down to 0 if u want it to auto load the default boot option (should be winxp).

You may think you changed the boot.ini file, but unless you removed the read only attributes first, you didn't actually save the changes.
