[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect </i> <br>

Use Disk Management to help to recover space.

Comtol Panel | Administrative Tool (Classic view) | Computer Management | Disk Management. View that it's the correct drive then open My Computer, Right-click on the drive and choose to reformat it to an NTFS drive.
