Hey all.

A while ago I updated my laptop, which runs Windows 2000, to Windows XP. Since it has been running both operating systems and I have been having to choose which one to run at startup. Since I have no need for the former system that is Windows 2000 - is there any way I can remove it entirely?

Thanks guys! :whistling:

Hi JaMaKe...

Do you have all the data you want to keep from the Win2000 installation?

Open "My Computer" and double click the "Local Disk C:" icon. List for me the folders you see in there.

Then right click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties". Under the "Advanced" tab, in the "Startup and Recovery" section, click the "Settings" button. Click on the "Edit" button. Copy the contents of the notepad window (boot.ini) and paste it here for me.
