I had to do a system repair after SP@ got/was messed up and went back to SP!..anyway every time I start up I get a pick a start up boot sequence ??? don't quote me on that one..or the current one will begin in I think it is about 15 seconds. It has 2 at the top Run current... and restore to the original?? and then further down it has some more options. But, no matter which I click I still get it when I start? I hope you can understand all of this babbling :thumbsup: Any help will be much appreciated.

Right click on my computer, click on properties, click on the advanced tab. Then click on settings under Startup and Recovery. This is where you can control the boot timeouts etc. If you click edit you can edit the boot.ini which contains the listings of the various options when you get to that screen.

Remove those entries that you do not want, or if you dont feel comfortable post it here, and someone will tell you what to remove.

Here is what it has under edit??

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /noexecute=optin /KERNEL=boot.exe
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Restore Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /noexecute=optin

So sorry for being such a nuisance :thumbsup:

Thank you for all of your help,

La Princess

Do you want the timeout shorter and only showing one option?

What ever you think would be the best since I don't have a clue...I think the answer is "Yes"

Change the timeout=30 to timeout=5

And Remove this line:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Restore Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /noexecute=optin

Then reboot and you should only have one option that give syou a 5 second pause.
