yes i just reinstalled windows, and i reinserted the xp disc again because i lost my second hard drive so i was using the xp disc to see if i could recover the 2nd drive.

I'm not sure, but it sounds like you have a partially completed windows installation in addition to the one you're using to login. There's insufficient information for me to say if it would good to complete that installation or not. Sorry.
Editing the boot.ini file might suppress the message, but the issue will still be there.

i have fixed the problem, by reinstalling windows but leaving the file system intact, but i had to reinstall all programs lost.
My thanks to caperjack & Moz for their support
