I was trying to do a repair of my original win xp and ended up somehow with two copies of win xp on my hard drive. When I start the computer, I'm prompted to select one. I have my original with all my programs etc, and the (new) xp version which is a "bare" version with none of my added programs.
Is there a way to erase the "bare" version I inadvertantly installed? It's taking up 4g on my hd and is useless, besides having to select the other one each time the computer starts.
Any help would be deeply appreciated by this old guy who don't know what he''s doing, but does it anyway!
I'm new to the site and the posts are super. <_<

Hi Tom, welcome to Geeks to Go! :D

Of course, it's not as simple as just deleting the second copy of Windows from your hard drive <_<

I just finished deleting the copy of xp I accidently installed, and the instructions were quite clear and easy to follow. Worked 100% and again, many thanks for helping me fix it.
