    XP Dual Boot - removal advice please!

    I installed XP on my PC, and it cocked up so rather than format I installed a 2nd hard drive and installed XP on that. So I got a dual boot up screen which was no problem. Got the original installation fixed, and removed the second hard drive, but I still get a dual boot - any ideas how to fix this?

    Thanks

    edit c:/boot.ini in notepad, it's fairly obvious how the file is laid out
