    1 of the known issues - in installing Win Xp’s Service Pack 1 - is the

    CORE SYSTEM FILE ( KERNEL ) …. I.e NTOSKRNL.EXE boot file

    Microsoft recommends Un Installing software which modify the above file
    naming specifically “ BootXP “

    I’ve UnInstalled BootXP ( Control Panel > Add/Remove ) BUT !!!!

    1. Boot menu - installed by BootXP - is still there - UNCHANGED

    2 . BootXP’s “ boot screen “ is still there & not Win Xp’s original
    Boot Screen

    How can I restore the required setting for a successful installation of
    Win Xp’s SP1 ????

    You need to edit your boot.ini located (hidden) in the root...

    Code:
    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

    amic mentioned that the boot screen is still not the original xp one. How do you get NTOSKRNL.EXE off the xp cd ready to replace the hacked one?
     
  4. What is it for Home Edition?

    Doofus hit the nail right on the head !!!!!
    can somebody propose a viable solution apart from editing the EXISTING boot. ini file - which is in any case was MODIFIED - UPON INSTALLATION - BY BootXP
