I've connected a  second  HDD on the same IDE cable with my first HDD. WinXP was installed on my first HDD and I've installed a winxp on the other disk too. Now I had a dual boot config and every time when I restarted my computer I could choose from which disk I wish to start winxp. But then I removed second HDD and restarted comp again. OS choosing screen appeared again and now it appears every time when i start my comp even if I have removed second HDD with second installation of winxp. It is very annoying. How can I correct that? Please help.

You need to modify the boot.ini file and remove the menu item for the second drive.

Go to Control Panel->System then click on the Advanced Tab...press the Settings button in the Startup and Recovery Box then click edit...remove the entry which is not the the one pointed to by the default (default = ...) then restart...it should not be there anymore
