I recently re-installed Windows XP pro onto my computer. I was attempting to
do a clean install, but instead I have ended installing the OS twice. I get a
choice when I boot up. Is it possible to remove the old OS?

thank you

Hi

Please see if the following article by Michael Stevens helps:

one I don't need?"

Do you have two different installations of Windows XP, or just two
choices at startup, both of which take you to the same place?

Use Start - Run - MSCONFIG; go to the BOOT.INI tab and click on the
button to "Check all boot paths". That may clear things up for you.

Good luck
