Sorry, no direct emails from this list. It's pointless anyway since you should be receiving the group email directly anyway. I wish you would have posted before you re-installed Windows XP. You probably would have had the "repair" option explained and suggested. As it is, it sounds as though you did a side install to a different directory instead of installing on top of the existing one. This has created two installations with a boot.ini to choose the one you want. Personally I'd suggest you back up your data, reformat your drive and do a clean installation. Make sure you have proper drivers for all your hardware before proceeding. Do this by visiting the websites of any periphial devices you have and download the current drivers. Save them as a back up and use them when you re-install Spider -----Original Message----- From: 24hoursupport-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:24hoursupport-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Lene Pagsuguiron Sent: Monday, April 21, 2003 5:21 AM To: 24hoursupport@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [24hoursupport] WinXP Pro at startup I was having problems with winxp so I reinstalled it w/o formatting. Everything seems okay, I installed avg and zonealarm and am still testing to see if the computer keeps locking up (the mouse doesn't even move, i have to manually shut down). My idea is that it was the firewire card, so I took that out, but the computer was still freezing up, that's why I reinstalled windows. Thing is, I get a prompt to pick from two of the same operating system, but my old configuration is still there. How do I get rid of that? The one I want to use is the first one, the other one is the old config. It's not a huge problem, just a minor annoyance. BTW, it would be great if someone emailed me directly. Thanks!
