uninstall unwanted non working Vista 64

I have a bit of a problem, I have 2 versions of Vista Ultimate 64 bit on
my PC. The first is on my "D" drive (this version does not work) I
reinstalled it on my "C" drive and now I can boot up again.

I want to uninstall the version that doesnt work but dont want to muck
up the boot settings. Please could someone help me out with how I should
go about it?

Hi,

Run msconfig from the start/search line, click on and delete the line that
loads the unwanted installation on the boot tab. Format D: and/or delete the
unwanted installation files. You may need to take ownership/change
permissions in order to delete files.

Hi, angdrumm.

Didn't you see Rick's post? Did you read it?

Just in case it scrolled off (or maybe your "forum" didn't relay it back to
you from this Microsoft public news server), since it's not very long, I'll
copy it here:

If you want to bypass that "forum" and post directly to the source, just
click here:
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof...allation_setup

That should fire up your newsreader (not your browser) and bring you right
back to this newsgroup, where you can read all the messages, not just the
ones that the forum managers choose.
