Well i will learn the hard way...

I installed Linux on another hard drive conected to my pc, and correctly linux found another OS so automatically created a Linux Select OS Boot Screen, and i decided i didnt like linux (because i couldnt get used to it) so i tried to uninstall it, and i tried but i couldtnt find out.

well i have a handy tool on the Windows side called "Partition MAgic", which has a even better tool called delete. And thats what i did (formatted second hard drive).

Problem is on boot it still asks me what OS i want to load. In the Control Panel > System window it sayd there is only one OS (Being WinXP)

How do i change the booot back?

Cheers

Hi I love my vans...Welcome to G2G!

Is this under the advanced tab in the Startup and Recovery Settings? If not, you can choose the default operating system there. The removal of linux may not have cleared this setting.

Howdy:

Boot into the Recovery Console using your XP cd.. Once in there, run the fismbr command..
