I just recently re-formated my HD again, and I am seing something new I never
had before I re-formated.
When I baught this PC it came with xp home, I purchased an upgrade disk for
xp pro. I instaled it and used it as a stand alone, anotherwords I didn't
upgrade xp home I just did a full install of Pro. Well I had no issues and
boot up was always the same. I just had some trouble and had to re-install
windows again, this time I had to actually re-install the ariginal xp home
then I did like before I installed xp pro, but made it a full install not an
upgrade. When I did this I did like before and had to delete the partition xp
home was on and re-format the drive, then it installed like planed. But now
when I start the computer, it goes to a screen asking me if I want xp home or
xp pro, and I never seen this before. I keep saying yes to pro, infact when I
click on yes to xp home I get the error it is not there.
So all this is to ask (yes Im a jew and it takes a while to ask a simple
question) how can I just get windows to start like normal, and just boot up,
whithout going to a doss like screen to ask me which operating sys I want.
Is there a quick fix??
Thanks for reading this mess,

Hi,

Click start/run and type msconfig, then click ok. Go to the boot.ini tab,
click the button to "check all boot paths". It should offer to remove the
invalid one. This should be all you need to do, however if it does not
resolve the problem we can still edit boot.ini manually. Post back if this
is the case.
