How to remove Windows 7 boot loader?
  

Hello.

I have uninstall Windows. Everything went well! I followed the instructions to make it clear where I simply had formatted the partition on which I had installed!

Now for me, to start when this boot manager entry, where I always need to select windows xp! I like to get away? so that windows xp start again, without what I need to enter?

Many thanks for your reply

Hi,

To fix this problem :

1.) Go to your start menu
2.) Click Run
3.)Type in w/o quotes, 'msconfig' and hit Enter
4.) Across the top, you should see at least 5 tabs, one of them saying 'boot'. Click on it.
5.) You will see multiple command lines underneath there displaying the current operating systems that have boot files available. If you don't want your Windows 7 one and just want XP to boot without seeing the boot loader, the highlight the windows 7 one by clicking on it.
6.) Down below that, click Delete, click okay, then close, and restart your computer.

Hi,

You can use XP disc to delete the partitions,

1. Make backup
2. with the original XP CD to boot
3. Menu "repair console" option (press R)
4. At the DOS prompt (c: \) type in: fixmbr, then Enter
5. then type: fixboot, then Enter
6. to stop typing: exit, then Enter
