The counterpart of XP boot.ini in the Vista system

By Healer ·
When I was looking for the counterpart of XP boot.ini in the Vista system this morning I found that it hasn't got it. Instead I found a bootmgr file, no ntdetect.com file and no ntldr file. The reason I was looking for it because I found out the list of operating systems in the Startup and Recovery panel has two entries of Microsoft Windows Vista. It must have been created when I re-installed the Vista without wiping away the older one. I supposed I could do the same with XP and delete one of them in boot.ini. Is there anyway to do it?

Also because all these boot files and system files are still sitting at the partition of the now-empty partition where the old Vista system was I believe that is why I will never be allowed to delete this partition.
