removing dual boot in bios

Specs: Windows XP
I had two OS's in my computer on separate hard drives. I removed the added OS, now I still get the request in bios asking which OS I would like to boot into. Can someone please tell me how I can remove this request in my phoenix bios?

it is not in the bios but in a file called boot.ini edit and delete the line you do not want

Are both hard drives still connected? Did you format the drive your removed the OS from?

I had it on its own partition,on a separate hard drive. I can't remember exactly what I did. I do know I now have other files on that partition, as well as 5 other partitions on that drive. I did a search and came up with boot.ini.backup. Windows tells me it doesn't know which program created it.

Do you have a WinXP CD? If so, boot to the recovery console and use the fixboot command, which should redo the boot.ini. Look at the link below. You do need to know which hard disk the boot partition is on. You should be able to determine that by looking in Disk Management and comparing the partition sizes to My Computer sizes.
