Removing XP from a dual boot

mynameisboringmynameisboring Member Posts: 75 ■■□□□□□□□□
I have a machine which is running 2000 and XP, and I would like to remove XP and make it boot to 2000.

Where I'm stuck is that I can not enter XP after choosing XP to load from the list, and I can not find boot.ini under C:\WINNT for Windows 2000. And yes I have already cleared "Hide protected operating system files", and selected "Show hidden files and folders"

Can anyone give me any tips or suggestions on solving this?

    I have on this one 98, 2KPro, and 2KServer (see my c:\boot.ini below)

    To change the default to any one, on YOUR system boot.ini, copy the line BEFORE the ' ="Micro... ' and place it after the ' Default= ' and you will always boot there. Then using 2000, eliminate the XP stuff by deleting the directories.

    [Boot Loader]

    [Operating Systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(4)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /fastdetect
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(3)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
    C:\="Microsoft Windows 98"
