hello, dan welcome to XP-erience, you should know that it looks like your keyboard is busted and types only in CAPS, if it isn't and you did it, it means your hollering or screaming, why?

just messing with you, hopefully somebody will help u with that boot up problem

:cool:

actually I think I know the answer to this,

get a 98 boot floppy disk, boot up with it in the floppy drive, after it loads type this.

fdisk /mbr

that should fix the master boot record, but wait for somebody else to respond I'm not 100% sure on this, have done it in 98, but not XP myself.

:cool:

i think that would do the trick... but you should really repartition your disk and make one partition out of it i think... :\

Remove 2 boot option

edit the following hidden system file to reflect the following

c:\boot.ini

[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

Please note the second to last line has wrapped around.
!!BACKUP the original boot ini before and compare the 2 before you modify it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
