Hi experts, i have a computer with 2 operating systems, when i first turn on the computer i get the optinons:

Are they on different partitions or the same partitions?

You can remove the SERVER boot entry by modifying the BOOT.INI.....

But need to know if on different partitions and which one is on what.

Here's how to complete the task in a few steps:
1) Edit your boot.ini file. Remove the line that ends with "Microsoft Windows 2000 Server".
2) If your default OS is the Windows Server, you should edit the line starting with "default=". Everything AFTER the equal-sign should be replaced with everything BEFORE the equal sign in the line that ends with "Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional".
3) Boot the Windows 2000 Pro and simply erase the Windows 2000 Server folder.
That's all.
