I believe I have the OS installed on two different drives C: and D: and I went into the CMOS but I don't know how to uninstall the OS from the D drive without deleting the partition and deleting all of my files on that drive. After I run the POST I'm shown an option displaying exactly two of the same WINDOWS XP options to select. Can someone present me with a clue or a way to isolate and delete the OS on D:. If I try to Add/Remove WIN XP on D: will that do it without losing my data?
2ndly, the only way I've been able to access my data on both drives is by selecting the first option above and entering through safe mode. When I try to click on the user icons it keeps telling me that I have to register with Microsoft. I tried using the key code but it is old and now Microsoft is not excepting it?
