I did a search and found several topics close to what I needed but not exactly so I will ask.
I have a drive with XP pro installed. I found that I disliked XP Pro and wished to return to Win2k. So as not to lose any data I left that installation in place and created a new partition (right behind that 1st one) with PM8. On this new partition I installed Win2k. Everything went fine except that I seem to have jacked up the XP installation as I can no longer boot into it - but that is fine as I don't really want to now.
Question is ... how do I get rid of:
1) The dual boot dialog at boot up - I seem to have created a dual boot setup and I don't want it as such - I want to format that 1st partition and use for data only. SO that the only boot option would be the Win2k installation. I've been reading that the mbr is on the first partition so I'm glad I didn't just go ahead and format that 1st partititon!
2) Change my 2nd partition (with Win2k) to drive letter C: - it's currently D: as it was installed with the pre-existing XP install as C: In the disk management section it won't allow me to change either partition as they are "boot" partitions. Am I stuck with D: as the drive letter? I have a lot of programs installed [already] so I guess it would cause a lot of trouble changing it now - right?
Thanks for any advice!
