Hi there. I recently was dual booting with windows 7. Then I deleted that partition and now xp still is showing as 'earlier windows', with a timeout of 30sec. Twice I did fixmbr; that did not change. Then I went into 'My Computer' ->Properties-> Startup and Recovery, and I unchecked the 30sec timeout. I even edited 'boot.ini' manually to put 0 as timeout. No results. When I reboot, it still shows 'Earlier version of Windows' and there is still the 30 sec. timeout. Why doesn't it go into xp directly? What am I missing? Thanks in advance for your tips.
