My freind is an idiot. 2 XP's on one hard drive
Gah my freind called me today at 3:45 ish and said he had a computer problem.

He somehow installed two copies of windows XP.

He did a fresh format, installed one, did nothing to it, and then installed another one. So he has 2 bare copys of XP. And he asked me how to uninstall one of them safely. So me being not sure and never hearing anything like this happening, I looked on good ole' google and got nothing.

So if you could help me out I'd appreaciate it ;)

Well, you can't install XP into the same folder, so, there must be two different 'Windows' folders. Delete one. :)

Either that, or just format again lol.

He could have partitioned it, so ask him that.
If he has than delete one of the partitions, and extend the first with partition magic
