View Full Version : Multibooting Win2k and XP but now I only want XP

I don't know if it's possible to remove Win2k without screwing up the multiboot. I've manually taken Win2k apart (deleting files) making sure I keep the multiboot files intact. This is just the standard windows bootloader.

What I want to do is make my D: which is WinXP the C: which currently holds a partial Win2k which is no longer needed since I never boot into it anymore. I don't need the multiboot.

Is this even possible? or does it require formatting and reinstalling.

Kame,

You may be able to remove everything on C: and transfer everything from D: over to C: by using something like Norton's Ghost, and then creating a bootloader for Win XP by using the recovery console from the XP setup CD.

Make sense? ;)

Mike.

You may run into trouble with the zillions of drive letter references in the registry (and elsewhere?), that probably are currently d: for the XP installation.
