Triple boot dilema
I have a system (my main one in fact) and I have a three OS triple boot with win ME, Win 2k pro and XP RC2. I want to get rid of WinME. It resides on the first active partition of the disk. If I delete WinME, will I then wipe out my boot.ini file and no longer have the option to boot into XP and 2k? I'm just making sure but I think it will delete boot.ini, but an fdisk /mbr will restore the boot record.
All help is appreciated.

This is where partition magic comes in handy as it lets you delete partitions and reclaim space to distribute elsewhere without messing up your dual boot plus it also has a boot menu as well if you want to use it. I would try the latest version so it can handle XP.
I don't think deleting your WinMe partition will have an effect on the mbr.
I will let you know when I try it tonight.
Thanks for the info
If you simply delete everything from C: that's related to winme, everything should work as before and you could use the now nearly-empty C: drive for swap file, storage, installing programs, etc.
