When my computer boots up, I'm initially prompted to choose between:
Windows 2000
or
Windows

It times down from 30 seconds (unless I choose one of the two) and then opens up in the Windows 2000 OS. If I choose Windows 2000 the computer boots up just find. If I choose Windows it brings up the blue screen of death.

I want to have it so when I turn on my computer the "Windows 2000 / Windows" options screen doesn't come up. I want the computer to just load up automatically.

I believe I need to un-install the Operating Systems (I assume there must be two due to the above options), reformat the hard-drive, then re-install Windows 2000.

How do I correctly do this?

Thank you for your help.

that is one way to fix it.


if you choose that path then

1) boot from a floppy
2) at an A prompt type "format C:"
3) when its done, boot from your install cd and follow the prompts.



another way would be to change the time the menu is displayed to zero in your boot ini file. it will still be there but you wont see it.

the first way is better as it gets rid of all the extra files from the prev os.
