Have you been checking for repies to your original post? Follofwing his a
reply I made originally;
"Actually it is easier to set up a XP/Vista dual boot than to remove XP
afterwards. Assuming (I know - lousy word!) XP on C and Vista on D - Vista
installs files - in particuler a hidden folder titled "Boot", which
contains DCDStore data, on C, which if deleted as in deleting the XP Windows
folder will prevent Vista from booting. Also in a dual boot setup, or
"remainder" of such, Vista looks for boot.ini.
Options: 1. Delete all folders/files in C except for folder Boot, and as a
safety measure Boot.ini, Boot.bak and Bootsect.bak. Shrink C and add
unallocated space to D.
2. Use BCDEdit (As a command line tool) or a third party program such as
VistaPro to modify Vista to boot directly from D.
3. Reformat and reinstall Vista
Above all - BACKUP!!!!!"
