I acidently installed Windows XP on my "I" drive, which is a partiton of my "C" drive. So, I reinstalled Windows on my "C" drive only to find that the version was still on my "I" drive too.

I am able to boot to the 'system' "I" (as it is called in decive manager) drive, but I don't want it for obvious reasons.

I can't simply format it, windows wont let me. So, how do I remove this version of windows?

Thank you in advance!

Which version of windows are you trying to reinstate?

So when you boot up the computer, you have an option to boot into either version of windows?

If so

Just edit the boot.ini file in notepad and format the partition.

post back if you wish to know how to edit the file.

Thanks Rtus, and ed-0 I already deleted the boot version in boot.ini but I still couldn't delete the partition (it said that windows could not perform this).

I ended up wiping the whole HD and starting again which worked a treat.

Thanks for your help!
