    I found a link to download the pre-rc1 vista from MS site but after
    downloading and
    installing, vista reports that it is beta 2 build 5384. Been there, done
    that. How do I get rid of the dual boot? Just delete win vista from the
    drive? Or do I need to change a config file in addition to deleting vista?
    Thanks. Oh, I'm using Win Xp-SP2.

    Rob, thanks for the info. I put this in the boot.ini file (see below) and I
    still get the dual boot option when restarting. Anyone know exactly where
    the file is for a dual boot for Vista? Plus I can't delete the Vista files
    from my computer. There has to be a way to get rid of Vista. Thanks.

    I was able to delete Vista by formatting the partition that it was on but I
    still get the dual boot option when restarting. Still looking for a *.ini
    file or something that controls that. Thanks for any help.

    Run msconfig and boot tab. Do this in both OS!

    Will, that doesn't contain any info about the dual boot. Thanks for the
    reply. Anyone else have any information about getting rid of the dual boot
    screen upon start-up? I've completely deleted the Vista files and
    reformatted the partition so this information has to be on the Win XP
    Partition.
