    Just built a computer, installed xp and when I restart i get a Black screen asking me what operating system to start up:

    Microsoft Windows XP Home edition and
    Microsoft Windows XP Home edition

    the first choice is highlighted, If I dont hit enter it starts in Xp after about 10 seconds..
    How do I bypass this screen. There is only one os on this computer why am i getting this option, its really just a waste of time for me.

    Lonman Bleh!

    Go to Control Panel> System> "Advanced" tab> "Startup and recovery" settings button. At the top is your bootloader options. Just untick the "display...." box and it should boot right up. You can also edit the boot.ini file.
