I wouldn't suggest using ReactOS and Windows on same partition as there is a possibility of losing files. If you want dual boot you should at least use different partitions for ReactOS and Windows.

I did install it on C:\ like windows because that installer said that D:\ and E:\ are unpartioned diskspace! Now I want to remove React Os from the Boot loader and from D:\react OS and C:\ROS

In C:\, there should be a hidden file called boot.ini, if I remember correctly. It'll list the OSs you can choose at boot time.

As for deleting those files, just delete them manually.

It should just be a matter of deleting the line C:\bootsect.ros = ReactOS

However, do be careful with that. And as a final note, in the future, don't install operating systems to the same partition. That's just asking for conflicts and possible data corruption issues.

Yeah, ok but that stupid installer said my other partitions are unpartioned diskspace!

I have got a problem I can't modify boot.ini! It's invisible even if I say everything should be visible so I can't deactivate the write protect
