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.

you just need to edit boot.ini, remove the 2 lines that you do not need, so the 2 OS you do not want

then you can FORMAT the 2 partitions/drives

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

BUT you will lose the data on those drives.
