OS Remains after Reformat

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?
