Unistallation from a dual boot machine

By flores ·
Hi,

I'm running a dual boot machine right now. I have windows NT and windows 2000 installed. Is there a way to uninstall windows NT and just leave windows 2000 on the system? Please let me know on how to do this. Thank you very much.

Yes it can be done.
1. move the win2k boot to the top of the startup list
2. get a partition utility (partition magic, partition commander, etc.)
3. after installing the utility, remove the nt partition and if neccessary move the w2k partition to the left(partition magic) or down(partition commander)
4. if it is neccessary, remove the nt boot list from boot.ini(this step is not needed for the change to work, it is just cosmetic)

Hi,

Win2k and Windows NT are in one partition. They are installed in C: drive.

Since you have both in the same partition, just boot into Windows 2000.

You had to have installed W2K into a different folder then the WinNT folder.

You can just delete the WinNT folder.

If you want get the NT 4.0 off the boot display you have to edit the boot.ini file.

This is a hidden file on your C drive.

You have to use the Attrib command to remove the System and Hidden flags to edit the file.

You just remove the line that Shows Nt 4.0 and make sure that the default line is for Win 2K

If I were you, I would leave the boot.ini file alone! No sense in creating a problem. The computer will just not boot up if you select NT 4.0 as the boot system.
