  1. I am currantly running windows XP Pro. I downloaded the XP x64 trial from microsoft and installed it to my stand alone IDE drive. I checked it out and decided that I didnt want it anymore so in Windows XP i just formatted the hard drive and thought problem solved. Next time I rebooted it still gave me a choice on wich OS I wanted to boot into x64 or XP. Anyone know what I have to do to get rid of that ?

    Heres the quick way to get rid of that option when booting up. Right click on my computer, choose properties. Click on the advanced tab, and under Startup and recovery click the settings button. At the top of the window that pops up, in the pulldown choose the OS you want to stick with and uncheck the option that says "Time to display list of operating systems:" Then hit ok, and restart to test. That should do it.
