    OK here is the situtation. I had my system originally setup with Windows 2K Pro and I installed Windows XP Professional on a seperate partition D: I installed XP Pro to test out functionality for our network in comparison to Windows 2K Pro. Since submitting my results to Corporate Headquarters they have decided they dont want to spend the money right now. I already have gone into Administrative tools and cleaned the partition of Windows XP so that I would have more storage but it still comes up showing 2 OS. Unfortunately XP Pro is the default and so I cant set it in the BIOS or Windows to not give time to select the OS because XP is chosen and the OS is missing (Not a good thing). So does anyone out there know how to remove the Windows XP from the selection screen when the computer boots up?

    P.S. I dont want to get into a discussion of sticking with XP because at this point its not my option to keep it installed if the rest of the company is not going to use it.

    1. run msconfig.

    2. go to boot.ini tab

    3. choose check all boot paths

    4. delete the unwanted boot path.
