i installed XP on my second HDD aswell as my first, then removed my second but the boot records are still asking which 1 i want to use.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=signature(25528917)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
signature(25528917)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

here is my boot record, i cant figure out which 1 is from which harddrive.

any help?

I would assume that they are in order as to how they were installed. First & second. You should be able to figure it out by going right clicking my computer/properties/advanced/startup & recovery/settings. Have a look there to see what is what. You could even click on 'edit', change between the quotes where it says "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" to "huh". Reboot, then you will see 'huh' as an option. You should easily see which one it goes to then go back to the boot.ini & delete the appropriate line.

disk 0 is your c drive disk 1 is your d drive

backup your boot ini file first though incase you need to redo it but im guessing take out the first line and change the default to the other one

I have an extra line> The 3rd line. Have a look. You could try adding the line. Don't think you'll get locked out.

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Hipster's

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
