I just formatted my hard drive and installed Windows XP Pro. I originally had Home on it. Now whenever I start/restart my computer it asks me if I want to boot into Home or Pro. How do I get rid of the Dual boot screen (GRUB?) and get it to start immediately?
You mustn't have formatted properly if you have both versions showing. Do you have more than one partition or more than one hard drive? You need to delete the version of XP that you don't want. Once thats done, you just boot from your XP CD and goto recovery console and type FIXBOOT and Press enter, then FIXMBR and press enter.
If your unsure about what to delete, then post a screenshot of your HDD in explorer so that i can see your partitions and directories and i will tell you what to get rid of. Its normally something like windows.old
yea thats what id do. its wierd. if you format a whole hard drive and install a fresh copy there should be a new boot.ini with only the one os on
Yeah, thats what i thought. Thats why i reckon he hasnt done it properly. I also mentioned FIXBOOT and FIXMBR to him coz its probably easier for him to do it that way, rather than to start playing with the boot.ini file, especially if hes not sure about it.
