    delete all the system files. You should never install multiple o.s. on the same partition anyway. During the install windows should have warned you of that.

    I deleted the system files but when I boot up my computer it still makes me choose between Media Center and home edition. This Wouldn't be a problem if the Home edition was hilighted so it automatically loads home but Media center Is highlighted so it automatically loads media center(and it can't load because it doesn't have any system files).

    So I am basically asking if there is a way to take off the choice for media center when booting up?

    Edit your boot.ini.

    Just delete the Media Centre line et voila.

    its hidden and read only its located at c:\

    try using msconfig and editing it there its easier.

    or attrib -h -r -s boot.ini will make it editable with notepad.

    Just go to the control panel and select "system"
    Then select the "Advanced" tab, and select "Startup and Recovery"
    From there, you can choose which line of the boot.ini file the system will look at first, and you can disable having a choice at bootup. It's safer than editing the file by hand.

    BTW, if you do edit it and screw up. You won't be able to boot your system again. You're gonna need this:
    It's a diskette utility that will allow you to boot into a system with a screwed up boot.ini file and fix it by hand.
