    I had Windows XP Professional installed prior to installing Windows Vista onto a different partition on my hard drive.

    Now when I start up my PC. I be given three options.
    Earlier version of windows and for some reason I get two vista options.

    The first vista option works but the second vista and earlier OS option doesn't.

    Look at the image for a clearer understanding.

    Thanks.

    Im not exactly 100% sure but i know you need to go into your boot.ini file and change one of the lines in that file so that it can boot straight to XP and in that file you can get rid of those options that do not work.

    Edit

    By looking at this again i would just choose the one that says Windows Vista and none of the rest because one is recovery and one look like a restore point so go for the one that is Windows Vista on its own and hope fully that would resolve the matter.

    Thanks for the reply borhan9,

    I've fixed the problem with help of a fourm I found from a google search.

    I downloaded this program called EasyBCD, which detects the current boot options and allows you to edit, rename or delete boot entries.

    Thanks for the help anyways borbhan9.
