    Hi sooo we have two computers and one has windows xp the other one is windows 7. My parents aren't great with computers and prefer what they are used to. So i switched our two towers/modems so that now I have windows 7 and they have xp. Everything was working fine until i renamed the computers. I restarted my computer fine but on the xp computer the boot hangs at

    I can't type or do anything but people are saying the Yoo Yoo is a virus:confused:
    At one point it asked for an ATAPI cd-rom....but then i changed the bios and that line went away.

    I've looked around online and tried to change the boot order in my bios but nothing works. I've also reset fail-safe and optimized defaults, updated my ESCO, and hard-drive is set to auto. Still nothing works.

    We've had some changes made to the computer so I don't know all of the specs and I don't know how to find them out...really sorry. Also, I don't think I have an xp installation disk but I'm not sure since we had someone replace our hard drive or something. I have this one that says Operating System CD Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2.....but its from hp so I don't think so.

    P.S. I did back up all documents on a flash drive and they are all on the computer I am using right now
