I have Windows Pro installed on both of my hard drives. I
then formatted the slave (D) and left C with windows xp
Pro. Everything works fine except when I boot the
computer it still asks me to pick between operating
systems. If I pick the latter it obviously doesn't work
and asks me to reboot.


How do I get rid of the annoying startup question?

Thanks for any help in advance!

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 Professional" /fastdetect
