Because i have a dualboot of XP and Vista, my Boot selector has two options right. Wrong mine has 4 actually, two for Vista only of which one works ( Its because i reinstalled Vista), XP, and an XP setup one for some reason. I really need help on cleaning this out. I had already asked in the Vista section and they gave me an article to read and I read it and I didn't understand. So iwas hoping if someone could help me by explaining it to me in simpler terms on how to make only have the things that exist now. Any help is appreciated a lot.

hope this helps, let me know if it makes sense or not


to delete an invalid bootpath:

run command
- press keyboard buttons: winkey + r button
- paste this: msconfig
- press: enter
- click tab: boot.ini
- click button: check all boot paths
(computer checks the boot paths and removes invalid ones)
- restart the computer

- system restore
- repair with XPcd

then if these two don't work then do a clean install
