Installed new windows xp home but still have xp professional installed aswell

I thought that I had eliminated xp professional before installing new windows program. But now when I start up pc both programs become an option. I recently realized I still have xp professional on my pc. Not only is it still professional but it has all my programs and files still. Its like looking at my old computer again. I need to delet xp professional without damaging my home addition. Aswell, my xp home additon is putting files in "I" drive even if I manualy try to install into C drive it still puts my programs into "I". Now "I" drive is full and my pc is running really slow. Is there away to put all files into C drive?? I need help.

No sir you can just convert your windows into xp home original.you will have to format the pirated windows which you have then re-install your new xp home into it
use your xp home cd to format your hard disk by booting your system with the xp cd and then install your windows
Feel free to ask anything
Thanks

You should take it back to the guy that did it and have him format the drive to remove eveything from it then reinstall XP from your manufacturer disks.

Windows XP Professional Re-installation inTriple-Boot


This was an very interesting way of sharing a computer
six persons sharing one physical drive with 5 partitions.
If that physical drive breaks all six persons loose their files in one crash.
The easiest way to do it, is to buy an external drive and have a meating with the six persons telling about the situation, if noboby attemts to save their files,they might loose them for good.
Everybody does a backupp on the external drive,
and then a full format on your home computer to get a new fresh installed fresh drive.
This was a little bit of a complicated solution,
as 6 persons sharing the same drive,
but i hope it helped!

This behavior may occur if you install Windows XP Service Pack 1a (SP1a) on your computer, and do any of the following:
  • You upgrade your Windows XP Home-based computer to Windows XP Professional.
  • You reinstall Windows XP on your computer.
  • You perform a repair of Windows XP on your computer.
To resolve this behavior, after you upgrade your Windows XP Home-based computer to Windows XP Professional, or you perform a reinstall or repair of Windows XP, reinstall Windows XP SP1a on your computer.

After you reinstall the service pack, restart your computer.

try this and tell me incase if any issues

Only ever trust Microsoft updates. You could try doing a system restore to a point before this happened if that doesnt work i would boot PC from XP Home CD and choose the repair install option. You wont lose any programs or documents by doing this but no updates will be installed which in yourposition is a good thing. If all above fails its down to a format and complete reinstall. If you have anything i would backup before doing anything just incase. Good luck from Scott
