Yes and welcome to geekstogo. I can help you, unfortunatly i have acquiered a very good amount of expirience on partitions. One thing you could do would be to get a partition manager tool like "partition magic" or "bootitng" and delete the MCE partition and then resize your windows xp partition using the space that used to be MCE.

You might want to do this first though: got to Control Panel>Administrative tools>Disk manager
and you could delete the partition from there as long as you know the correct drive letter* that is very important! Window MCE and XP will have diferent drive letters probably C:\ and another one. thought to resize youll need to use a partition manager as mentioned above.



I WILL WARN YOU THOUGH THAT I ACQUIRED A LOT OF EXP. ON THIS SUBJECT DUE TO MISTAKING PARTITIONS AND DELETING OR RESIZING THE WRONG ONE!!! BEFORE YOU DO THIS BACKUP YOUR FILES I REPEAT BACKUP YOUR FILES!!!!

ALSO, IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHICH PARTITION TO DELETE OR RESIZE OR WHATEVER DONT DELETE ANY, COME BACK TO THIS TOPIC AND POST ALL THE PARTITIONS LISTED WE (OR I) WILL HELP YOU AND TELL YOU THE PARTITION TO RESIZE OR DELETE.
