Thank you to Nickat Night for posting this! I had my HDD reformatted and a clean install of WinXP Home done mid-february and have been getting this boot up black screen as well ever since! I too went from a former 2 partition HDD to a 1 partition drive, per the tech that did the work. Did Ramesh's instructions to fix per Louis' link and the ugly black screen has gone and Windows regular boot up screen jumps right in now. So far, Ramesh fixes and easy-to-understand instructions have always done right by me on several occasions over the years, I have to say. Glad I stopped in & saw this post!
