winxp is still there!! It's only not listed in bootmenu. You want it in bootmenu, or wanna delete it totally? I wanna advise the last option, because you only installed it to do a thing you called a restore

Yes, IŽd like to get rid of it (WIN XP) so that it does not occupy any space. Any suggestions for a safe way to delete it totally, so that I donŽt make a blunder again?

First promise me you do this!

Do this in Windows 7 every time you modify the start point of partition (so also now)!

System Protection - Turn On or Off
Disable it for drives, even ghost drives listed there. Then enable it on C drive as described in point 7.
7. To Turn On System Protection for System Settings and Previous Versions of Files
You can also create a manual restore point in same dialog. Do it after adjusting settings.

-----------------
Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use
On disk defragment page you can set a schedule. Modify it, because most likely is out of balance due to ghost drives.

To get rid of winxp:
In what is called C now...

boot.ini, ntldr, ntdetect.com are in C:\
Open elevated command prompt:
Code:
c:
cd \
now for each file
attrib  -h  -s  boot.ini
del boot.ini
not realy needed!! files are small!

Post all output of last command. Boot menu still has some things I didn't fix.
Run the command from Elevated Command Prompt
Yes, both two commands were succesfull. However the third one (bcedit etc) does not work.
