After you start your computer with the four Windows 2000 boot floppy disks, delete all the partitions on your hard disk, and reformat the drive, the Boot.ini file displays the previous boot options.
This behavior has existed since Microsoft Windows NT 3.5 and has not changed. This precaution is taken to keep from accidentally deleting access to existing operating systems.

To remove previous options, open the Boot.ini file in a text editor and modify it to contain only the appropriate options.
