I would first just like to say thank you for taking the time to read my post.
Now onto the problem. When I switch on my computer to load windows xp it eventually states the following...
Novell Netware Ready Firmware v1.00 (940809) (C) Copyright 1991-1994 Novell, Inc. All Rights Reserved SiS 900/7016 PCI Adapters Dos ODI Driver v1.05 (990410) (C) Copyright 1998 SiS Corp.

I've never seen this before, I'm not even completely sure what Novell Netware is. What steps can I take to successfully boot into windows?
I have the original Windows XP CD and have repaired the existing installation of Windows however that doesn't seem to have helped. Would any of the following commands help in Windows Recovery Console, CHKDSK, FIXBOOT, FIXMBR?
I have made sure that the BIOS are at optimal settings for best performance and should boot from the correct volumes.
I would appreciate any help on this matter, or even some links to resources or similar questions. Unfortunately I was unable to find any within this forum.
Thanks again for your time.
