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
it is usual to install an upgrade version over a previous o/s if it is aking you to continue install this could be the problem btw i am assuming of course that you did a clean install of xp without a previous o/s installed
I do not know what you are talking about, where did you get the idea that i had said anything about you being involved in a previous post or thread relating to this subject. Back to the subject, I read in a computer magazine that eve with the xp upgrade disc a clean instillation can be done and part of the way through it will ask you for 98se just top verify that you have the disc. Terrahawk I did try doing the instillation again then i registered it again and switched it off then on start up exactly the same problem.
