    I've put Vista onto a separate hard disk, no longer dual booting from the XP hard disk. However when the XP hard disk is the first to load (via BIOS setting), it gives me the option of XP, Vista(the old one that no longer exists) and then Vista again, for the one on the other hard disk.

    I'm trying to get rid of that second entry, for the old Vista.

    I then want to set it so that my Vista drive is primary, but will still 'see' XP on the second drive.


    My XP boot ini shows :

    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS

    I would say vistabootpro, except they started charging for it... glad I got my copy while it was still free!
