    No that shouldnt matter ...

    Coinach you want to try this on your XP machine , maybe I missed something

    Actually it should be a hd cd

    Shouldn't matter where the HD is in the BIOS, as long as you don't have a floppy or CD in the drives that allows a bootup. Go to the BIOS and disable the Short Boot mode, maybe you are just missing seeing the prompt

    I have tapped from the time I hit reboot but I'm not getting a safe mode option. This $ucks big time.

    Well, I have an Asus P4P800 SE but the splash screen is disabled. It loads really fast and I tapped all the way through it. You sure it's not another key?

    Now that I've got that out of my system, here's a little Murphy's Law addition. When you need your monitor, it will fail. In the middle of all this, my old monitor went black so I couldn't have even gotten to you to ask another question. As soon as my safe mode travails were over, the picture popped back in, of course.

    So what will we do now for nail-biting suspense and technical challenges?

    You guys have been AMAZING - patient, creative and funny as can be. It's been an adventure and a great learning experience, for me at least.

    Now let's start talking about those installers . . . LOL!

    Well I think I can take a little calm for a while now instead of the "Payton Place" nightly adventure we've had here..

    This thread definately has to go down in the records of the most rediculous post over an icon EVER!

    Yesh ........ We need to get this one gold plated!

    Where's Coinach in all this ... come on buddy get in here and do a happy dance too!

    well you sure learned a lot in the process, hmm lets see:

    registry
    command line
    safe mode
    knowing about the short startup mode


    hmm ...... what else?

    I guess I should write a quick tutorial on how to do this now ... for the next NUT!

    Nope. Just been putting together a few choice words to the Microsoft "Research Engineer" that I have been communicating with for weeks. He finally said M$ couldn't fix it because the problem was with the 3rd party software from my ISP and that they couldn't help me any further. It was absolutely INFURIATING! I only hope he actually reads it instead of just deleting it.

    THATS just about what I would expect from those BOZOS ... GOD I hate tech support people. First thing they are taught is how to LIE!
