Type MSCONFIG in Run box press go the click on boot.ini tab That is what needs changing. As I am on XP home I cannot tell you what Pro should look like

" # Boot your computer in to Windows XP.
# Ensure you have the Vista DVD image emulated or in the DVD drive.
# Go to “Start” and “Run”. Type in “e:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force” (without quotes, and replacing e: with the drive letter of your Vista DVD).
# Restart the computer, and you will notice the boot selection menu is gone.
# Format the partition/drive where you had Vista installed.
# Remove two files (Boot.BAK & Bootsect.BAK) on your XP drive’s root folder (C:), these were backup files of your previous bootloader, now no longer useful.
# Optional: Restart to ensure it still works."

Hi Dan, I just tried what you suggested and all I got rid of was the sign in page after the windows logo
