I only have Windows XP installed but on every reboot the screen shows up to select the OS I want to boot.
There are two options, both Windows XP, first one is the normal OS I just installed and if I choose the second one it just gives me an error and PC restarts. The problem started when I installed Windows 7 on another drive and then manually deleted it.
I reinstalled Windows XP a few times but didn't solve this. I formatted the drive I installed Seven on too but the problem still exists. How can I get rid of this?
