I have two operating systems on this computer. How do I
delete one partition without screwing up the other OS?

Thank You

Get a third party tool like bootIt ng.

Giving us a little detail would help - like which two operating systems?
How did you install them (which order, and what partition/boot manager are
you currently using)

Sorry about that Noel,
I built a computer for an employee and I prefer ME so I
used Power Quest Boot Magic. When I first boot up it says
Boot Magic and gives me two options to choose from ME or
XP which are on seperate partitions. Only I never use the
damn thing so I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of
ME without messing up any of his stuff on XP. Can I just
delete the partition with ME? If so how do I get there? Oh
and I no longer have the Boot Magic cd's :-(

Thank You

Beau

Not Noel, but Jack here.

Your desired simplification process is exactly as I originally offered:

Removing WinME when dual booting with XP
Remove a dual boot. #19

There are no "Boot Magic CD's". Boot Magic is the boot manager accompanying
Partition Magic, a partition manager.
The previous vendor of Partition Magic, Powerquest, was purchased by
Symantec in Dec, 2003.

The way I'm understanding that is that it will only work
if both operating systems are on the same partition. But
they're on two seperate partitions?
