OS choice at startup

Following my recent missing NTLDR file posting which is now cured..........Thanks SANTOS7, good advice and it worked a treat.
I'm now left with the legacy of my fumblings to try to cure the problem.
On startup I'm now presented with the choice of loading Windows XP or Windows XP setup, the default is Windows XP setup which results in a blue screen telling me to run chkdsk etc...etc

Ideally I'd like to remove the options and have Windows load normally.

Any advice gratefully accepted

1. Right click on My Computer, and select Properties.

2. Now click on the Advanced tab.

3. In the section labeled 'Startup and Recovery' click on the button labeled 'Settings'.

4. In the system startup section at the top of the dialogue box, click on 'Edit'.

This will open a file in Notepad - the file is actually called 'boot.ini' but don't worry about that.

Look carefully for a line in the file that relates to the Windows XP setup routine, and delete it.

Now save the file, close your dialogue box, and restart your machine - all should be well.
