hi, this is my first post here.

when you boot up your computer the bios(i think) gives you list of available operation systems.
when you quit windows installation before it finish completely it leaves you a 'windows XP' line.
my question is how do i delete this line or refresh list or something because its giving me 1 sec to click on something and if i dont click it display error message and then reboot and it mean i need be near the computer while he reboot and pres on the arrows buttons so it will boot correctly.

hope you will understand my explain.
thank you for your help.

It looks like you have more then one XP installations, one of them corrupt. Are you sure that you want to remove one? If yes, click Start > Run. In the command line type msconfig and click Enter. Click BOOT.INI and then Check all Boot Paths. Windows will identify what operating system you have and will check the path. If one is faulty Windows will ask if you wish to cancel it. Agree and let windows remove it.

If you know at which folder the corrupt installation is, use windows Explorer to reach this folder and delete it.
