got a big problem on the boot menu.
First of all there appear to be many problems (see longwinded note at bottom)with this machine that i'm trying to clear up, other topics submitted to the proper forums, but, if you shut this thing down, after many other wierd things that happen, one gets to the boot menu, which consists of XP, safe mode, and a line in the middle of those two that contains 3 things; first, an "a" with a back slash ON TOP of it, then what appears to be a small case "l", and then after a couple of spaces, a skinney heart shaped symbol!....what on earth could this be???
Longwinded note...here's what the machine goes thru when it tries to restart after being shut down:
client mac addr: 00 0E 7B A0 00 11
guid: c88A6b00 EBB9 11d6 80D2 D4A094013231
DHCP revolving symbolif you hit delete, then you get
PXE-EAO network boot canceled by keystoke
PXE-MOF exiting intel boot agent
Then, upon reboot you get <windows root>\ system 32\HAL.dll cannot be found, please re-install the file.....
then try to reboot and you get the page with the client mac...... over and over again, untill you finally get to the boot option page.....HUH????????
