    I've currently got a problem. I recently installed Windows 2000 Professional and removed Windows ME, because let's face it, ME is a pile of horse dung.

    Anyway, whenever I start up I get a Dual Boot option asking me to choose between

    Windows 2000 Professional
    Microsoft Windows

    I've checked C:\boot.ini and the content of the file is as follows:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
    C:\="Microsoft Windows"

    I've tried editing it to remove the Dual Boot option, but nothing so far as has worked. Reinstalling is not a good idea, as I have currently no way of backing up all of the files on my computer.

    If anybody knows how to help I would be very grateful.

    Removing that last line should be all you need to do. If it still comes to that screen, sans that last line, just change the timeout to 0.

    Do you mean the line that states

    C:\="Microsoft Windows"?
