Did you do a clean install were you deleted the partition and
recreated it and formated it?
or did you install Windows XP pro to a separate partition on the harddisk?


If you did a clean install than you can edit the boot.ini file and remove the
entry to Windows XP Home.
If you installed Win XP Pro on the C: drive then go to start, run, and type
C:\boot.ini and then remove the line referring to Windows XP Home.
and save it.

The file maybe set to read-only and hidden as default and not let you
save it. You would need to go to start, run and paste this in there and click ok attrib -s -h -r c:\boot.ini and after you make the changes you need
to put the settings back so go to Start, run and paste this attrib +h +r +s c:\boot.ini
