If you have two XP installs on the same partition, a so called parallel installation, then that should be listed in the Boot.ini file. You should be getting a BIOS screen asking you which operating system you wish to boot into. The default folder where the installation files are copied is C:\Windows. You would have to specify (rename) a different folder for the second install, such as C:\Windows2. From Explorer you should be able to view both folders. You should be able to delete the folder that you are not logged in to at the time. Goooooooood luck and be sure to back up your files first!!

To just help out please do the following steps and include the requested log for review.

Please do the following in the exact steps. Failure to do so could make the boot.ini damaged and cause unstable or unusable results with your system.:

Save a Backup Copy of Boot.ini

1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl and then click OK.
2. Click on the Advanced tab, and then click Settings
3. In the Startup and Recovery area at the bottom click Settings.
4. Under System Startup click Edit. This opens the Boot.ini file in Notepad ready for editing.
5. In Notepad, click File on the Menu bar, and then click Save As.
6. First in here change the location in the top white drop down box to Desktop. Then in the file name change to Boot.old and save as Text Document(*.txt) and save it to your Desktop and then click Save



Please copy and paste all the lines from your Boot.ini file in your next reply.
