Hi, Zak.

It should be an easy two-step process. One gets rid of the menu item (and
therefore the menu, since no menu will be presented if there's only one
possible choice). The other step reclaims the disk space used by the
now-useless installation. It doesn't really matter which step you do first.
Each step is easier to do than to explain, so I'll give you just the bare
steps here; post back if you want details.

1. Edit C:\boot.ini to delete the line pointing to the unwanted
installation. Boot.ini is a simple text file which you can edit in Notepad
or any text editor (after removing any Hidden, System and Read-only
attributes).

2. Delete the X:\WinNT folder, where X: is the volume holding the copy you
don't want.
