Okay, I just installed 2 copies of windows 2000. I did so because I needed to repair a corrupted file. I have no intention on keeping a dual boot system especially with only Windows 2000. My question is, how do I delete the option in the 'Select OS' screen during startup? Thanks a bunch.

Link is broken but I think I figured it out. I was searching my HD for the boot.ini and the results come up negative. I finally did a run command and up comes the boot.ini file. I edited it and all seems fine now.

Thanks anyways.

I'm glad you managed to get the file edited.

It's strange that the link didn't work for you, because it isn't broken. I just checked! How very odd. Maybe your browser timed out.
