Win XP install question -- dual boot
I've been working on trimmed win xp installations using nLite to use with Centrafuse (I think I have it; will post after further tests). The last ISO I attempted to put onto a USB memory stick and boot from that following these instructions. It got through the part of the install process where it copies files to the HD and reboots itself. At that point it said a file (hal.dll) was missing or corrupt. I didn't want to fuss with the USB memory stick any more so I just copied my ISO to a DVD+RW and re-installed.
On this second time through installing Windows, I performed only a quick format on the existing partition. The install succeeded.
Now when I boot I am given a LILO-style screen where I can choose to boot one of the following operating systems: Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Home Edition. That's right, they are the same, except one is the first attempt that failed and the other is the install that actually works.
I'm not a Windows guy . . . presumably the first install is not even there but only something in the MBR. Yes? If so, where / how do I change this? I don't want to just install again since it seems from this experience I'd then have three choices.
