Previous Versions of Windows at Bootup
Posted on 2011-02-12
I recently had a computer crash on my Lenovo laptop that left me unable to boot up to my Windows XP. I figured it was time to upgrade to Windows 7 anyway, so I went ahead and installed Windows XP Pro (so that I could continue using my XP programs). The Windows 7 works fine, but everytime I boot up I get a screen that gives me choices of booting to Windows 7, a previous version of Windows, and a couple of other options. The problem is that if I'm not there to cursor up to the Windows 7 option it automatically tries booting to my previous version (which is corrupted and leaves me with a blue screen with a bunch of "can't do it" messages which requires me to manually shut down the computer and restart it). Is there any way to get rid of the vestiges of the XP program so that the computer just boots to Windows 7 ??
