1. Backup, backup, backup
2. Reboot and Boot to your XP CD-ROM
3. Start the Recovery Console
4. Run Fixboot
5. Run fixmbr to reset the master boot record
6. Exit the Recovery Console
7. Reboot
8. To remove the extra entry, edit the boot.ini file to remove the “Microsoft Windows Longhorn” entry.
9. Format Your Vista Partition

You need to edit the boot.ini file to remove the Vista listing. This article will show you how: How to Use and Edit Boot.ini in Windows XP
