I'm trying to uninstall and remove the dual-boot option. Even with all files uninstalled, my Win2k system still gets the option to load Puppy when booting up. My guess is the boot.ini file still has that option. Advice on how to revise boot.ini to remove the Puppy option, without corrupting the startup?

thanks

Type in a dosbox:
ATTRIB -R -H -S C:\boot.ini

Now open C:\boot.ini in the Windows-Notepad and remove the line with Puppy.
Save and in a Dosbox:
ATTRIB +R +H +S C:\boot.ini

cave,

It's easy...

1) Adjust permissions on boot.ini from read-only to read/write
(right-click on file, uncheck read-only box)
2) Remove the lines that offer the option to boot Puppy
3) Save boot.ini, then return file permissions to read-only

Best regards,

kcin
