How to remove one operating system in dual boot?


-right click on my computer, select properties
-move to the advanced tab
-under 'startup and recovery' select settings
-in the new dialog box you have a couple of options:
-if you wish to leave DOS on the machine, but not see the option screen you can simply set the 'time to display list of operating systems:' to 0 as winXP should now be ur default OS
-if the removal of dos is your goal, then click edit
-first save a copy of the notepad file which opens 'boot.ini' just incase you make a mistake
-now there will be a lines similar to:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

*There will also be a line for dos here under [operating systems] something like 'multi(1)disk(0)partition(#).....'
-check that your default line points to XP, as it does above
-now erase the line with the other OS, in this case DOS 7.1 ie. 'multi(1)' NOTE *the entire line may be more than one line in notepad*
-save the file
-then you are free to erase the folder associated with the erased OS NOTE *if a mistake was made, you may wish to do this as the last step*
-reboot your system and its done.

-upon any mistakes load into either DOS or XP, etc which ever is easiest (or still remaining on your system)
-copy the old boot.ini over the modified one, and try again
-good luck

When I try to revert back to Windows XP From Windows 7 it asks me for a password that i don't know.


I think your problem is this, you try to install Windows XP with a pre-installed Windows 7---windows doesn't accept downgrading of O.S., so the best solution on this would be to erase Windows 7 or format the hard drive and install a fresh Windows XP.

If possible, download a program called "glary utilites" It will fix all your computer errors, erase adware and trackers, and optimize your computer.
I would also suggest downloading a free version of Avast Security. Which is the best free anti-virus.

If you are having problems just getting to desktop, You should either try reinstalling your windows program or deleting everything with a program called "system restore" which will erase everthing on the harddrive back to new condition. That from there you should reinstall windows.

Backup all your data to a CD, or an online storage device such as http://skydrive.live.com/ (50MB Max limit), or search on google for "free online storage". Put in the Vista CD and restart your computer. Press F8 before Windows XP starts to load. Follow the steps to install Windows Vista. When it asks you, reformat your hardrive. WARNING: REFORMATING WILL ERASE ALL YOUR DATA, SO MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR IMPORTANT DATA BEFORE. You will then have a clean install of Vista which will allow your computer to run much faster. From there, you can restore/download your files that you backed up.
