Default Help I created a dual boot by accident.

Help I created a dual boot by accident. I made the mistake of starting the windows install disk when I had windows open and it made a dual boot.

1 widows operating system
2 windows install/setup.

Now when I start the computer it goes to windows install / setup if I don't select windows OS .

Can someone tell me how to edit this, So that windows OS starts when the computer is started.

[Boot Loader]
Timeout=60
Default=C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT\BOOTSECT.DAT
[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Home Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows XP Setup"
