    Hello,

    My computer is running XP. I've tried installing FreeBSD on another partition and then unistalled it.

    However, during the start-up I get this annoying message: "F1 ??? F5 Defualt F1?" that causes my computer to halt for 15 seconds/untill I press F1. After that, the XP is uploaded and running ok.

    Suggestions anyone?

    Thanks,
    Lior.

    Was it a dual boot, if so what does your boot.ini look like?
