i have windows XP, recently installed Norton ghost 9.
AS per Symantic Website I had to change the Boot.ini file to include the following line under [operating system]
/noexecute=optout
The program installed fine and works.
However, when I reboot the computer screen asks me to select an operating system.
The one choice is Windows XP.
the second choice is /noexecute=optout
Then i have to manually select or wait 30 seconds for the cpu to boot into windows.
How can i set the computer to boot directly into windows.
i would be guessing that if i removed /noexecute=optout from the boot.ini it would work. is that what i have to do.
also i could not find any other lines that began with /noexecute as asked by symantec.

your advice is appreciated.

Yes, that is where i got the procedures for making the change.
However, do i have to chane the DEP back as well.
so as though i had never made the change in the first place.
if i do not have to change the DEP will this affect security issues and someone running malicious code.
If i do not really need the Noexecute in the boot.ini, why had it been suggested.
as well.
what are others using, is it just my cpu or is this what usually happens with the boot.ini having a /noexecute=optout line.
