While trying to fix other issues, I have accidently installed 2 copies of Win
XP Home edition. How can I get rid of the extra one? I don't want to
re-format the drive, just get rid of the uneeded second version of WinXP.

Thanks in advance,
LSmith

You sign in to the one you want to keep, open Explorer and delete all
folders holding the second, unwanted installation, edit boot.ini to remove
the deleted one. You're good.
