When windows is starting I get the screen offering wether to start up XP home or XP professional.

how do I get rid of this option screen and just start XP professional ?

actually, that only allows viewing, not editing...

My Computer.. Properties.. Advanced tab.. click the Settings button in the Startup and Recovery section.. and then the Edit button.

BUT TAKE CARE UNLESS YOU'RE UTTERLY CONFIDENT HERE!!

Start.. Run... msconfig <ok>... and click the BOOT.INI tab.

But the real question is that this machine looks like it used to dual-boot - have you removed one of the OSs now?

Then I would suggest that you Save a copy of the Boot.ini file as a backup from notepad, and then you can delete the ONE LINE from the file that relates to Home.

Save a copy of the file, still named as boot.ini, reboot, and you should be good.  All the numbers in the brackets in the remaining line refer to disk and partition locations, so don't change or delete anything here without being fully clear on the impact, or you can have a non-booting machine...
