O/S Menu

By The-Bear ·
My main opperating system is Windows 98, I installed Win2 on another partition and then removed it to try out Windows XP. This has crashed on me and I can't start it up even in safe mode, it is giving me a PCI.SYS error on a blue screen when it tries to start. Now I want to remove it, which is no problem, but how do I remove the "Which opperating system to start Menu". If for some reason I have to restart and forget to stay with the computer it will try to start Windows XP, The next one down isWindows 2000, and the last is Windows 98. I would like to remove the two first entries, How do I do it please?

The simple thing to do, is to edit the boot.ini file, and remove the W2K and XP lines.
For more information, check out the boot.ini page at www.systeminternals.com

However, if you are having problems booting, I would go back to the W98 boot files.

Delete Boot.ini and ntldr from the root folder, then boot from a W98 startup disk, and run the command sys c:

This will replace the W2K/XP version of command.com on the C: drive.
