Help I have two XP systems installed on different drives

  1. I did a reboot and reinstalled XP onto my computer but it has installed XP onto another drive so I now have 2 operating systems, I looked online how to get rid of one but when I go into device management and try to reformat one of the drives It is greyed out and I am unable to reformat it.
    Please can anyone help me as to how I should go about getting rid of one of the installed xps. Also the drive letters are now changed around and as they are both operating systems I am unable to switch them back
    Any help would be much appreciated

    Are there multiple HDDs or are you speaking of several partitions on the same HDD?

    hi there, finally got it sorted, Yes I have two hard drives (one partitioned) I had to delete all partitions in the blue screen and reformat the hard drives before reinstalling XP. Had to change the cables over for it to install on the right drive
