Dual OS Option

  1. When I start or restart my cpu, it is giving me the choice of what OS to run. Both are Windows XP to pick. Not sure why it is doing this. Any thoughts as to why it is doing this and possibly a fix for it, thanks in advance.

    apparently you have installed the OS twice and have now created a dual boot environment.

    what you need to do is goto run type in msconfig once that loads up click on the BOOT.INI tab then click on the check all boot paths if it finds one delete it, and reboot to see if it removed the reference to the nonexistent os.
