Windows would not start because of a computer disc hardware configuration problem.
Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check both path and disk hardware.
Please check the windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware reference manuals for additional information.

Now we need to go back to the boot.ini again and this time I want you to remove this line:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
Pay very close attention to the part I marked in red as the other is marked as partition(1) and you don't want to mess with that one.
Remember you have the original file so if something goes wrong we can fix it. I also have a copy so we are safe. Make sure once you delete the above line you save the boot.ini and then reboot. See if the dual boot option is now gone and the system boots up like it should.
