I am using Windows XP I tried to reinstall the operating systems and now have it twice under the one partition, how do i delete one of the windows installation to reformat the hard drive?


Its going to be a case of re-installing XP again.

As you go through the process, XP asks you which partition you would like to install onto.

If there's already and installation on the partition, you have to delete that partition.

As you continue through the process, XP will has you if you what kind of file system do you want Fat32 or NFTS. Choose NFTS and go for the full format. That should clear the drive of previous installatiions

Solution
I recognize the importance of resolving this issue and I look forward in providing you with the necessary assistance you need.

The above error comes if the boot volume is corrupted and cannot be initiated by Windows XP. or You are installing Windows XP on a mirrored boot partition that was created by Microsoft Windows NT 4.0.

To completely resolve your issue i think you have to reinstall the OS.

Disk formatting is the initial part of the process for preparing a hard disk or other storage medium for its first use. The disk formatting includes setting up an empty file system. A disk formatting may setup multiple file systems by formatting partitions for each file system.

Where is the /System32 folder physically located on the drive?


Hi there.
This is the path >>>>>> c:/windows/system32....

So, click on "my computer", you will see "local disk c", click on that, if it says "these folders are hidden" click on "show files". Then click on the "windows" folder, in that folder you will find "system32" folder.

Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Hello, I have 2 Operating Systems in a computer namely Windows XP(SP3) in C:\ & Windows Server 2003 in D:\ . I've deleted the file BOOT.INI accidentaly form X:\ drive(X:\ means all drives like...


Hi,
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]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
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.

Hi,
Try Scanning your Computer For Computer Viruses.
then re-install Windows XP.
Your files will remain intact, if you select to leave the hard-drive As it is ( rather Than Format it ) or setup on a different Partition.
Backup your Valuable Docs/Files First.
Windows re-installation will replace any Missing-deleted Corrupt Files.
hope This Helps you.

How to remove a second installation of a windows o/s


you would not have been able to install xp home over xp pro as pro is an upgrade from home, so xp pro will be on a different drive partition, so the last version you put on will be on the 'C' drive as thats the one that is bootable. Follow your instructions, or simply use your xp disc to format the drive and install XP home.
