You can't really "uninstall" an operating system. You could format the drive with media center on it, and then find some program to alter the boot menu system to remove that option, which is what I'd recommend. Or you could just find a program that will edit the boot menu for you, and remove the media center option.
Hello, I'm hoping that someone can help me out with this problem. I built my first computer about a year ago, and it went pretty well... OK here's my problem: I have 2 harddrives & I installed windows Media Center onto the second hard drive (XP pro on the first one). I wanted to test out media center thinking it would be a lot better than XP, and that I would just reformat my harddrive shortly later and start over w/ the windows edition of choice. Well media center never allowed me to set up my wireless internet, so I never use it. Since then I kinda forgot about it and allowed my harddrives to become nearly full of important files and stuff. Now when I boot I have to wait until it asks which windows to run & be careful to boot the second option (XP pro)or else I have to reboot.
My question is can I simply uninstall Windows Media center w/o reformating my harddrive?
- C drive has XP pro
- D drive has media center
- @boot it asks 1.Media center or 2. XP pro
then it gives you about 10-12seconds to make a choice before auto boot
Thanks in advance for any help!
