Remove unwanted boot option
Posted on 2011-09-16
I have an xp machine and decided to create a new partition which would have vista on it. After a while I decided that I no longer wanted this partition (and Vista) and formatted it. Problem is I still have the boot option on start up and can not seem to remove it.
I have edited the boot.ini file to make sure there was nothing still thee but to no prevail. Here is the boot.ini file :
;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems.
;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
As you can see there is no mention of either the other partition or Vista. Any ideas?
Fyi I did not remove partition only formatted it.
Thanks in advance for any help in resolving this matter.
