    Get rid of the vista dual boot screen?

    Ok, so I have Windows XP Pro installed. My hard drive was partitioned into TWO sections, because I was going to try out Vista.
    I installed Vista, played around with it, then ended up wiping that partition because I didn't feel I needed to migrate yet.

    But when I installed Vista onto the 2nd partition, I had the option of dual booting to either the XP partition or the Vista partition.
    But now that Vista is gone, that original dual boot screen is still there...
    I have modified the boot.ini file, but it didn't help. Is there another method to get rid of this?
    I'm talking about the "dos-looking" black/white boot screen, before windows starts to load.

    Thanks

    The thing that jumps out at me is reinstall the windows bootloader for XP.
    Otherwise you could install a third party bootloader, like GRUB (it is open source and free, generally used as a Linux bootloader, but is compatible with Windows).
