Q

How can I remove .NET Server from my BOOT.INI file?

I'm running Windows XP as my primary OS and .NET Enterprise Server RC1 evaluation OS. But now that my evaluation period is up, how can I remove .NET Server from my system completely? I know that I can just format the drive that is installed but how do I remove it from my BOOT.INI setting? Removing a "dead" OS installation from the BOOT.INI file is extremely easy. Once you've installed a new OS, you can edit the BOOT.INI file using Notepad...

and simply remove the line in BOOT.INI that refers to your old OS installation. There is a Microsoft Knowledge Base document (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=311578) that describes in detail how to edit the BOOT.INI file.
