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.
