    i have installed fresh copy of winxp sp2 few days back(only 1 os i hv) but after 2-3 days from no where there were 2 options for os selection
    i dont know from wher it came.....

    so i edited the boot menu and removed the other os path and it looks like
    ********
    [boot loader]
    timeout=7
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
    ********

    @syk : his default line is not correct,win boots w/o showing timeout even if timeout is set to 30.


    @ninad ...change ur boot.ini to following:
    [boot loader]
    timeout=7
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
