I was attempting to install Win2k on a different hard
drive, but when I ran the setup it put the files on my
main C:\ which I use on this computer.

When I boot up now, I get the following boot options:

1. Windows 2000 Professional
2. Windows 2000 (Default)

Option 1 is the original operating system. Option 2 is
the setup files and gives an error message when selected
to boot (which is not good because it's the default)

I removed the reference to the second option in Boot.ini,
but it didn't change a thing. Here is my current boot.ini:

[Boot Loader]
Timeout=5
Default=C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT\BOOTSECT.DAT
[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft
Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect




I just want to get rid of the partial setup so my computer
will boot right away without any boot select screen.

Change it to;

[Boot Loader]
Timeout=5
Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000
Professional" /fastdetect
