I did a fresh format and windows xp install. But when I boot up it says that I have 2 Windows XP's to choose from, obviously only one works and the other says I need to re-install \system32\hal.dll . I just want to know how to get rid of the invalid referrence to the non-existent OS. :confused:

go to msconfig, boot.ini then click check all boot paths, the click yes to delete the non working system.
