Although you can skip steps #5 and #6 given Vista was installed to an already-removed separate hard drive.
A couple days ago, I was running Vista and XP on two seperate hard drives on my desktop. I have since decided to use the Vista hard drive for data storage and have removed it from my desktop.
However, whenever I boot up my desktop, my computer still goes to the black windows uploader screen and askes me to choose and "Earlier version of windows" (the XP) or my non-existant Vista.
I've seen John's sticky about removing Vista but it was for 2 partitions within one hard drive. Does the solution still apply if it son two different hard drives? I'd really appreciate it if someone can help me remove this OS loader and just have the computer boot to XP normally.
