Thread: Boot Problem

  1. #1
    Everytime I reboot my computer, I get a screen that tells me to select what I want to do; run windows xp, or continue installing xp (a while ago I started to re-install xp but had to stop right in the middle of it) how do I get rid of this screen, so i dont have to select which one I want to do?

    You have to go into the root of the partition you installed from and delete all files that look like - $filename$
    any thing with dollar signs is a temp install file.
    then make sure your good system is set as default in
    Control panel/system/advanced/startup and recovery options.

    then edit the boot.ini to remove the temp install. If there's an extra line that looks like this >
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(*)\*********="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /fastdetect , take it out and click save. (it may say windows XP setup)


    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(*)\*******
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(*)\*********="Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server" /fastdetect
    C:\="Microsoft Windows"
