Hi vegan,

Could you please tell us which versions of windows are present and also if you are actually able to boot into each and everyone of them? Do you have a choice at the start?

If you can't choose from the start which version boot, how do you know that it's 3 seperate installations. It's easy to fix, just will need a little more info and I'm pretty sure everyone here will considering we wouldn't want to screw up all 3 [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

You probably are recognizing the service packs, how many megs are each of the versions.

Doubtful as he can boot in each version and has a boot menu. If they are seperate partition it's just a matter of whipping them out and re-writting the MBR.

You wouldnt need to rewrite the MBR, you could just wipe the OS you want removed and change the boot.ini file.
