Default Two Xp's, one hard drive? I have that... Why? :Please Help!:

Ok, what happened is that my hard drive on another computer had two partitions. I didn't want them. Now, i booted up knoppix, and then, delelted like 1300mb of 3.41 gb or something. I tried to take out the whole hard drive. Including the OS. It got rid of parts of xp, then froze. So i stick in the Xp disk, and i delete both partitions. And i install the Os again. Now I can boot from two different home editions. Only catch is one, is the full verion, and the other is corrupted, so technicly i can only boot from one, but i have my choice of two. So how do i take out the corrupted one..

And the partitions were like Fat 32, and Stsc or something that looked like that.. Lol.. But yeah pease help!

I assume that when your computer boots up that it give you 2 options to boot into.If that is the case then, firstly you must be absolutely sure which is the current (fully working one) and which is the damaged one.

Then paste this into your browser and follow the instructions very carefully.

Get back if you are still not sure.
