Getting Rid of Annoying XP Setup at Boot

#1
I need some help.

I stupidly tried to install another operating system, realize i can't do it, and now the setup at boot won't go away. Can you guys help me? Here is my boot info if that will help any.

[Boot Loader]
Timeout=5
Default=C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT\BOOTSECT.DAT
[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows XP Professional Setup"
Thanks!

And you'll need to change the default line too

[boot loader]
timeout=20
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

That's the full boot.ini I posted.
Copy/Paste it over yours completely.
