hi when i turn on my pc while starting up it show me (please select the operating system to start windows xp professional windows xp professional 30 sec to start) this is annoying is there a way i can turn this off?
Did you load winxp twice!! Right click mycomputer/ ,properties/advanced ,Startup and recovery/settings /uncheck time to display operation system to get rid of the choice, or set it to 5 to give you a chance to choose one OS or The other .
I don't see that as a problem ,more like normal and someday you'll be glad it there so you can hit f2 to getinto the bios and fix something . Having said that i do believe that if you hit f2 and enter setup ,you might find somewhere to disable the boot test or something like that .
all you need to do is : 1)Go to Start -> Run 2) Type msconfig 3) Go to BOOT.ini 4)Under the [Operating Systems] line you see 2 operating system (WINDOWS = AAA , where AAA is the Windows name) 5)Click "Check all boot paths". 6)It will detect one of them is undetected. Select to delete it.
I had this problem after I installed Windows XP SP3 and this solved for me.
