How to remove the dual boot menu.

By rturner ·
I attempted to upgrade a Windows pc to W2K. The upgrade didn't work out. I'm back to the original OS. How do I get rid of the dual boot menu at start up?

To restor your boot record to the pravious stage, boot your computer to the Windows 9x Startup disk (or ERP disk, or at can be just a bootable diskette from your curren OS), and when you'll see command prompt type:
sys c:
Reboot your PC.

Just boot the PC using your Win98/95 CD or any boot disk made in the OS. make sure that FDISK is on the disk. Once booted type in "fdisk /mbr"
Be careful not to go into FDISK and play around with Partitions.

this should take out the Menu for you.

It should be easy to get rid of the dual boot menu.
MS KB article describes the process:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q171/4/44.asp
It amounts to deleting:
Ntldr
Ntdetect.com
Boot.ini
Pagefile.sys (if present)
Bootsect.dos
(There are no spaces in the URL)
