Double Dose of Windows XP

by dstreck / August 1, 2005 10:09 AM PDT

Need a hand uninstalling a second copy of Windoze XP.
Thought that I could do a repair job on a quirky OS but ended up installing a second operating system. First one was the OEM from E-Machines ,2nd was an upgrade w/SP2. I removed the upgrade using the uninstall in the control panel but now,whnevever I do a cold boot I get the option to use one of two operating systems and one is uninstalled. Can I get some insight as to how to remedy this?
