Windows Default

Yesterday evening I transferred the contents of my then C drive onto a newer HDD. Everything went well except that now when I boot up I get this page (white on black) asking me to choose which way to go, the choice being "Windows Default" and "Windows Default". Can somebody please help to resolve this enigmatic instruction and just boot up normally? Any help appreciated.

Try running CCleaner, probably just a glitch in the registry.

I did that about anhour ago with the same thought in mind. A negative.

How did you transfer the contents?

You cannot just copy across windows from one drive to another, you need imaging software to transfer an operating system.

Did you do a clone?

Did you remove the old drive completely and put the new one in as master?

Can you copy and paste the boot.ini on here please for us to look at?

We used imaging software.
Thank you all for answering. I'm putting the original HDD back and using the new one as Drive D.
