I tryed to install windows xp proffesional and then changed my mind when it said there is some problem...I have xp home edition..
After that I got two options to chose at the reboot..xp professional setup or xp home..I then deleted the last line at the startup boot options in boot editor - this line was for the xp proffesional setup...

But now the problem is that I still have two options
first is xp home edition and the second is windows default, so I still have the same problem.,
I must choose at every startup xp home manualy, because windows default is not ok..
What can I do so xp home will start normaly like before?
Thank you for your time and help.

No problem. Thanks for following up. It helps when the post is clear and complete like yours was. :D

I just love the ones that go, "Help! My computer doesn't work. Can you tell me what's wrong?"
