    Ran into a bit of a problem lads, and would appreciate it if you could help.
    well I got a box with win2k pro and win 2k server and windows XP all installed on the same partitions (NTFS ), a small 4 gig.....dont ask me why I have squeezed in all this on a system that can barely breath .. it just happended :)

    what I am trying to do is to get ride of the win2k client and server without disturbing the xp version.


    Thank you

    Are the three on seperate partition son the same drive ? If so you should just be able to log on to the XP install, delete the other two partitions from Disk Management, then remove the entries to them from within boot.ini

    Have a look HERE for details on how to edit boot.ini.

    HTH :)

    Firstly, boot to your XP CD, then see if it picks up the other 2 and gives you the option to delete them. Other than that, see if you get distinguishable Windows folders in Explorer from within XP. If you do then you should (I take no liability for loss of files or data here) be able to remove them. Either way you'll most likely still have to edit boot.ini, so see above.
