    I had Win2k installed previously.
    Today I booted off my XP Pro cd and installed XP.
    I deleted all partitions from within the XP setup and formatted as NTFS, then installed the OS.

    Everything is fine except now when I boot the Win2k boot loader comes up and I have to select from my choice of booting XP or Win2k (even though Win2k is no longer on the system).

    How do I get rid of this stupid boot issue and just have it boot into XP?

    Thanks!!!

    Find the file boot.ini (Hidden file) in your root directory (C:\)and delete the entry for Windows 2000. Then save it and reboot.
    Easy as that :)

    FORMAT

    :D Should have formated your c:%drive so there was no trace of
    another os.
    XP is a very clever os!!

    Do A CLEAN INSTALL THEN EVERY THIG SHOULD BE FINE;)


    Get rid of the old os alltogether!!:D

    Not unless you want a dual boot sys?
    :rolleyes: But why upgrade?

    A format is unnecessary just to get rid of the W2K option in the boot menu.
