Default When i run windows i get the option of which os to run

when i turn my computer up it goes to a screen asking to run Windows xp home edition, or underneath it says "windows xp home" only the top selection works if you click it, the bottom one i think was accidentally made by me once and if you could tell me how to delete it i would be really appreciative


thanks

start, run, type msconfig, go to boot.ini click check all boot paths and it will tell you there is an invalid entry, click ok to remove it

You do not want to delete it just make sure the path is correct and there is only one option if you have 1 OS.
