  1. I need to remove this boot screen option, the partition that XP Home was on has been reformatted but the boot option is still there on start up. I just need to fix this problem. Thank You, Lucas

    Go to your System Properties (either by control panel or properties of "My Comptuer")
    Click the tab for "Advanced"
    Click the button for "Settings" in the Startup and Recovery section.

    Here you can set the how long that menu displays for, "0" doesnt display the menu. Or you can click the "Edit" button and alter the boot.ini file yourself, which can disable your boot up if you're not careful.
