    multiple OS help!

    OK...question...

    Mom's HP PC was REALLY slowing down, plus there was alot of junk on there, and XP Home was installed.

    so, I formatted the HD, and installed XP Pro. MUCH better. BUT when it goes to load windows, it still thinks that there should be a XP Home installed as well, so it gives me a stupid "Choose OS" screen. the XP home isn't there, I even selected it out of curiosity. if left alone it will load XP pro after 60 seconds.

    my question:

    how do I tell it to just LOAD win XP and SKIP the useless choose OS screen?!?

    Boot.ini


    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect



    If theres anything else in there then thats probably your problem.

    you may have to set view hidden system files to see this file.
