What is "style xp" ?

Do you mean that you are given the option of boting to 1 of 2 installations of XP ?

Don't know Style XP

It is possible to disable XP splash screen, which will slightly speed up the overall boot process. Be aware that removing the splash screen will also cause you not to see any boot-up messages that might come up (chkdsk, convert ... ), but if your system runs without any problems then it should not matter.

1. Edit boot.ini
2. Add " /noguiboot" right after "/fastdetect".

(or check the /noguiboot switch in msconfig on the boot.ini tab)

Upon restarting, the splash screen will be gone. It can be re-enabled by removing the new switch.

Sorry for last post... Looked up Style XP last option will just get rid of the splash screen.

Try editing your boot.ini (make a backup first)

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS ----> the numbers represent your drive/partition.
----> These are the default options/typical
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT

---->Enter which version of Windows you have

There's an option in StyleXP (I use it as well) in the Boot Screen section to "Reset Boot.ini File." It should return your boot.ini file to exactly how it was before you changed it.
