I recently had Windows Vista on my 2nd partition and I uninstalled that hard drive that had Vista on it and formated it.
When I boot my computer it still shows 2 Operating Systems to choose from, Windows XP Home Edition and Windows Vista. I want my computer to only choose Windows XP and not vista.
When I press ENTER on the Windows Vista option it says something like Could not read from the selected boot disk... So obviously it is not there so why does it still let me select it?
I went around googling my problem and it is as simple as deleting the Windows Vista line from my boot.ini file. But here is where my problem is...my boot.ini file ONLY contains Windows XP Home Edition, and thats it, no Vista...
Here is my boot.ini file:
;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 Home Edition" /FASTDETECT /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
So I cannot fix it by deleting the Vista line from my boot.ini, but yet it is still there when I start the computer somehow? Is there anyway to get Vista off my operating systems list even though it is not there?
