    New pc, installed xp and all is well.
    At start up though it gives the option to have either 'home xp' or another 'windows' version. It then counts down from 30 seconds before carrying on.
    How do i get rid of this option?
    thanks andy

    You need to remove the option you don't from the BOOT.INI file.

    For example, you would delete the second option below:

    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect

    Here's a link how to edit the BOOT.INI: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=289022
