Hi Bartley1969,

how is your hardrive setup? do you have partitions or 3 drives?

It canbe done, but this required editing of boot.ini file.
First you will have to delete the Windows system folders for the other two demos installations, and then you will edit Boot.ini file to remove their startup entries at the time of booting.

so you go into my computer, right click the drive and select format
