Windows XP Home Edition Uninstall

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have inadvertantly installed Windows XP Home Edition twice on my computer.
I want to uninstall one of them.

However when I go to Add/Remove programs in Control Panel to uninstall one
of them, neither copy is there.

The BOOT.INI file indicates that both windows copies are on the same
partition.

Can anybody sove my problem ?

if the folders are different you can delete one of them. delete the one
Windows folder, the correct folders in DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS and change the
boot.ini.
