getting rid of windows 7 boot screen
I installed windoze 7 for someone on a XP computer a while back. After they decided that they didn't want it anymore I deleted the partition that I created with gparted and reallocated it for their XP partition. However the 'dual boot' screen still appears with windows 7 set as the default OS even though the partition that it was on no longer exists. I was wondering how to get rid of this screen and have boot in XP normally.
After some research on the web I came accost the following info:
Open a command prompt and type C:\boot.ini to edit the boot options, and it should be fairly easy to edit the options if you have any experience with code.
However I have the following code and no trace of a Windows 7 operating system in the boot.ini file:
Any help would be much appreciated.
;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems.
;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.
