    Go to Start > Run and type: MSCONFIG , and hit enter.
    Click on the BOOT.INI tab and then click on "Check All Boot Paths"
    to delete incorrect boot paths.

    If the above does not work for you, then:

    Right-click MY COMPUTER and select:

    Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery Settings > Edit

    CAREFULLY edit your boot.ini file to remove the SECOND entry.
    Your boot.ini file should then look similar to this:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect
