2 operating systems when starting up

  1. Hi,

    I have 1 320 G HD , partitioned 40g for operating, 40 for ghost images and 220G for data.

    I accidently put the OS on the 220G partition instead of the 40G partition. I formatted the 220G with device manager to get rid of the OS and reinstalled on the 40G partition, BUT.... on start up it keeps giving me a choice to which partition I want to start up on. There is nothing on the 22og any more and I reformatted the 40G.?

    It gives me the ****s as I want the system to start up without any prompts.

    What else can I do? help please

    Edit the boot.ini file in the root of the C: drive (or use msconfig).

    thankyou so much,

    it worked, I actually solved something without asking the same person at work each day.

    I think he's getting sick of me asking. so thanks again.
