Uninstalling a dual boot

By niteprincess31 ·
I (for some unknown reason) unintentionally installed XP Professional twice on the same pc. I noticed this after trying to install MicroSoft Works suite 2003 and it told me i had no space on my D drive. In an attempt to fix this problem (space) Having lost my XP install disc, i came about a XP home edition disc, thinking this would overwrite my exsisting problem. In the installation i repartitioned my D drive giving me back the space i had lost. now i am stuck with XP Pro. (1 version) and XPHome ( 1 version) i would like to uninstall the home version and cannot figure out how please help me NitePrincess 31 in Maryland

just format d: partition. If there is not any data just wipe it and format it. Thats it. Dont try to reload XP. You may have to use FDISK to delete and readd partion if you used NTFS.

Boot into your XP Pro, then right-click on my computer, choose manage. Click on Disk Management and delete D partition. Formatting will work too. After that, you'll need to edit your BOOT.INI file located in C drive. It will contain an entry foryour XP home edition. Just delete it from the menu. Make sure you delete the home edition entry, and not the XP Pro.

Contact me at quintar_51@yahoo.com if you have any other questions.

good luck,
