Question about Computers & Internet
How to delete old boot? I am using windows 7pro, and old windows was xp pro, and now i boot manually ,but the time install win7 ,i formatted system drive, but the old boot is still alive, and is on the hard drive, so help how can i remove it? And boot automatically
Go to Start > Search. Type MSConfig. Go to Boot.ini. Remove extra partition. Be careful a wrong config will cause boot failure. I would make a back up copy of the file before making any changes.
There is also a chance of it saying to use Boot Manager. Same thing only command line interface.

It's very easy. You can switch SATA mode from AHCI to IDE (in Bios) and install XP, or leave AHCI mode, with 'nLite' integrate AHCI drivers into XP installatin files, burn and install... Drivers are not problem, just search in google, even ePower tools are working.

Control Panel > System > Advanced > Start Up and Recovery > Settings. near the top of the window you will see Default operating system, just select the one you want to stat first and delete the other.

You need to stop the service from running before you go any further...
click start>run type in 'regedit' then navigate to
Diable it from running. You can also do this by start>run type in 'gpedit.msc' and looking for the entry there, then disabling it
Once you have done that restart your machine, then look for every file on the HDD relating to ckvo.exe and deleting it. Check your %temp% folder and registry as well. When you think you have all the files empty the recycle bin, delete the key from the registry and restart the pc again.
Check to see if you can access you HDD as normal.
I cannot say for sure if this works, but it it is worth a try.
Do a google search for Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, there is a free version available, I believe Cnet Downloads have it on their site, install and update then run it, there is a good chance that the program will pick up the virus and remove it for you.

That's not a virus. Boot.ini is a default file needed for Windows OS to boot.
Fortunately, you can recreate the boot.ini files
This is a sample of the above Boot.ini file with a previous installation of Windows 2000 on a separate partition. [boot loader]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
Simple way to add operating system on a separate partition:
At the command prompt, type: bootcfg /copy /d Operating System Description /ID# Where Operating System Description is a text description (e.g. Windows XP Home Edition), and where # specifies the boot entry ID in the operating systems section of the BOOT.INI file from which the copy has to be made.

Chose boot sequence to boot directly from the HDD . Also check if the Hard Disk is OK by connecting it to another PC. Check too that the power cables are snug tight and none of the pins are bent in the IDE slot. Now try booting first in safe mode & if successful go ahead and boot normally....sodeep
