i just finished reformatting but everytime i start up windows (xp), i get a screen asking me if i want to run windows xp home edition or windows recovery console, and it gives me about 2 seconds to choose and disappears. why is this screen appearing every single i boot up? it hasn't affected the computer but its just so annoying to see everytime. if there is a way to get rid of this, i would appreciate some help, thanks!

Lets see the contents of your boot.ini file.

It is located at c:\boot.ini
