    if you are having multiple operatting system in your computer put an OS cd and format a harddrive on which the unwanted OS is present. this can be done at the menu of the partitioning which comes at the time of installing windows

    dear friend,

    You must have to different hard drive for two different OS.

    Its easy to remove any of two OS from your computer.

    Just right click on the OS installation drive which you want to delete.

    Now select the Format option from the list.

    Format tab will appear-uncheck the quick format box.

    Now click on Start.

    Wait till the format process completes.

    After formatting the drive, restart your computer.

    You'll not see the dual boot screen & the OS will be deleted which you've formatted.

    Hope these info will help you a lot.

    -If you are using two operating systems in different drives then you can format the drive according to the operating system you wants to delete.
    -If you are using the both operating systems in the same drive then you have to reinstall windows in that drive and before installation you can format your drive.

    Hi,
    this is not the big problem you should be worry about..
    If you have used Vmware for installing the other operating system ...you should uninstall this software for uninstalling the Operating system...
    Hope your problem has solved...

    Hope you have got your answer...
