I installed W7 but needed to get rid of it (I did the 32-bit and I'm going to get 4 more GB to bump to 8GB of RAM soon so need the 64-bit) but I am stuck with the W7 boot menu and I can't get XP's back! I have a 500GB drive that I had 320 to XP and 50GB then the rest (about 75GB) unallocated. I booted to XP and Managed My Computer and deleted the W7 partition entirely. I then restarted to the XP disc and choose to repair and ran the FIXMBR command. all gravy, right? no. It still shows the W7 start up screen and if I load up XP and run MSCONFIG I have this: ; ;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems. ;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options. ; [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT What am I to do? I want it to just boot straight into XP but instead I am given the start up selection, which has W7 as the default... but it doesn't exist.
