Hey Everyone

After reformatting my Acer Aspire 5000 laptop yesterday and freshly installing a copy of windows XP Pro(not the recovery disk) I expected the Windows XP Home that I had previously to be gone. However, whenever I start up the computer now, it still asks me whether I want to boot into Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home. How do I finally get rid of Windows XP Home? Whenever I try to boot into home, it says that the files are missing and that it cant do it. Also, are the files that were previously on that partition still there?

Edit the C:\Boot.ini and remove the line for XP Home.
