I need help removing the Windows 7 option from my boot screen. I know there are a lot of posts about this but I didn't find any dealing with my problem. Here's the deal:
I installed win 7 developer build in my second partition. First one has XP installed and running properly. As I found out later win 7 dev build did not run on systems with more than 2 GB RAM but at that point I tried to install it several times without success of course. After formatting my second partition the option to choose win 7 as operating system still appears. It's not a big deal unless I'm not there to choose XP, because after a painfully short time delay (only a few secs) it automatically chooses win 7 and tries to run it, and when it doesn't work out, reboot. I found help at Microsoft support pages but it was only for Vista. Here's a link Win 7 remove. After I researched the same solution in XP I found out it wouldn't be that easy. Here's a copy-paste from my boot.ini:
;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems.
;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT /NOEXECUTE=ALWAYSOFF /USEPMTIMER
If someone can find a problem there I'd be happy to remove any parameters. I'm curious to find a solution since there is nothing referring to Win 7.
Thank you for your help, I'm really eager to get rid of this problem without formatting my first partition.
