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

There is only one OS, but during booting it shows three


Delete the OS Command line inside the MSConfig indow by clicking start - run -type msconfig then press enter. On the MS config window click on the boot.ini tab then you will see the command line inside the text box. Leave the first command line from [Boot Loader] till the end of the command line of your Default Operating system.

Example:
(Leave this lines)
[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
(Till here!)
(Delete this line)
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Viz XP Example line Professional" /fastdetect (up to here)

any other command line that says Viz XP -- you may delete it. Click apply button then Restart the computer afterwards and this should fix the issue.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.

Cheers~

I have 2 HDD's in my PC - both with Win XP Prop


Boot.ini is correct, but looks default is booting from Disk2 and partition 1 which is your G:\ 500 GB.

Try Copying boot.ini from c:\boot.ini to g:\boot.ini It might help

In your example I see missing "\" after partition(1), may be typing mistake, but in real time can generate error.

You boot.ini looks exactly same in both drive c:\ & G:\

[boot loader]
timeout=10
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="GUY DRIVE XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Note: boot.ini will be hidden and readonly file. You need to unhide the file and remote the read only option and then only you will be able to save the boot.ini file

Hope this helps

I had to erase my hard drive and re-format it, now when trying to reinstall WINXP PRO, I can't boot from disk. Why is this. Please help


make sure to go into your bios by pressing as its prompted when it first boots up "press F2 for setup" or press "DEL" for setup. go to your boot options or boot sequence and change the boot order. for example if your "HDD" is 1 CD is 2 then change cd to 1 and disable HDD or change HDD to 2. save and restart then make sure the cd is in the drive and when it prompts "press any key to run setup" and press a random key and it will load into the setup of win xp

Winxp cannot boot - missing files message


Just make sure you get these files on your computer.
Download hal.dll from here:

http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?hal

Place it in windows\system32 folder.

Now go to the drive you have windows installed in (C:/ for example), and then create a new file, name it boot.ini.

Open boot.ini with notepad, and enter this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS /usepmtimer
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Save boot.ini now, and try booting your computer, it should work.

Where is Linux mbr file


There's nothing like the Linux MBR File. The option to boot to multiple operating systems is controlled by a software called as the "Boot-Loader".
Windows XP and Linux both have their versions of boot-loaders. The Bootloader that Windows XP uses is called the NTLDR, whereas Linux provides many bootloaders (prominent among them being "Grub" and "LILO").

>but Linux is shown in the manage option from the My Computer in Win XP 2.....
That is the control section of NTLDR. So from what I understand you shouldn't have a problem selecting the operating systems.

If you want the Linux bootloader taking control of the boot process, you can always install it.
All you need is a Linux CD and then run the setup for "Grub" or "LILO".

Information about installing Grub or LILO can be found easily on the internet.
