I have an 886 pentium 3 and have just upgraded from win 98 s.e.to xp home. The system all seems tom work fine but when I install Media Player 9 for example, and also some other programs and reboot the booting stops with LOAD ERROR PRESS A KEY TO REBOOT. I do this and the same message keeps repeating.I have tried to press f8 to try other loading options but this does not work as I believe the error message occurs before windows starts to load.Fortunately I have GO-BACK and can restore an earlier point.
