Hi

Trying to help setup a brand new pc for a friend (elonex,amd athlon xp28000+,512mb)running windows xp pro

Every time we boot up we get a choice saying
Please choose an operating system....

1. Microsoft xp pro edition
2. Microsft windows

any clues as to why it is doing this?

You obviously have 2 operating systems installed.

In W2K look up the systems information in Control panel click on advanced and set the system you want. Also clear the tick box that opens the option of presenting a menu of the 2 systems

thanks igr,

Went into control panel -> system and looked at the setting.

The default was set to winXP but it said

30 seconds to choose o/s or something??

anyway hopefully that should have sorted it out. Does any one know why it was set that way?
