Windows2k has been installed twice.

By kishwar.hasnain ·
I have installed windows 2000 on my computer, by mistake I have installed it again. Now the problem is when I switch on my computer it comes up with 2 windows on the screen and ask me to select which window I want to start.

It is bit anoying. I dont know how to remove one installation. All I want is, when I switch on my computer it should go straight forward and run the windows for me without asking me any question.

If anyone knows how to rectify this, please let me know.

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks
Kishwar

Your problem is easily solved,....

Get Partition Magic Boot Disks, boot from the disks and enter the program. You will see two different partitions; select the 2nd partition where you've installed the Win2000 and remove it (delete it).

BE CAREFUL! Make sure the partition you are deleting is in fact the second one. If by mistake you delete the first partition, you will lose the Bootloader file which is the one that controls the options to select different OS.

However even though you delete the second partition, you will still be prompted to select between the two different OS. So next you will need to touch the "Bootloader" file which is the file that contains that tell your computer that are present two OS in different partitions.//you should find it in the WINNT dir.

So open the file and remove the information of the second partition. Make sure to also back it up just in case...

In case this dows not help, you problably need to re-install from scratch!
