    partition setup, but having a problem

    i have 5 gig with the os on it set as the c:/ drive and i have 130 gig for media and everything setup as the d:/. My question is about when it boots up. While booting it gives me this option

    Boot from :

    Windows XP
    Windows XP

    i dont have windows setup on the 2nd partition (d) and i dont want to have to choose which one to startup with when the computer is loading. The first one loads fine but i need to get rid of the 2nd one on the list. How do i do this. If i leave it on there and boot the computer without pressing anything on the keyboard, it adds 30seconds to the bootup time which sucks. Thanks for the help.

    Edit your boot.ini on your C:\, or you can post its content here and we'll edit it for you
    Never be afraid to do something yourself. Remember - amateur built the Ark, professionals built the Titanic.

    Boot.ini will be a hidden file, you need to change your folder setting to allow windows systems files to be visible.
