Ihave just built a computer - As rock MB - 2000xp processer 256 ddr crucial 266 ram 40gb Hd. I installed Xp Home on it ( it is the upgrade version) I then registered it and no problems. When I switched it on the next day it asked me if I wanted to continue the instillation or go straight into xp, this seems to have no effect on the way it runs but it is a nuisance to have to select at the start instead of going straight to the welcome screen. Can anyone tell me how to get round this problem. Thanks Alan
Yes It did the reinstall again then asked me to register it again which i did and still the same problem, as i said before it is more of an annoyance than a problem but it would be nice to find an answer to it
Not sure if this is the cause of your problem, but when you install XP, [even an up-grade to a clean hard drive and using your qualifying O/S to verify]. When you first insert the CD you will see the message, "Press any key to continue". Do this the first time, but you will see the same message twice again as your PC re-boots.
Do not press any key on these occasions, or you will find yourself in an endless loop of installing. Just leave the PC to re-boot by itself. j.
