    Another Computer Problem

    First off, I would like to thank all of you that have helped me with my computer problems this far. Ok, I was running Win98SE and I purchased XP Pro. I didn't want to fully upgrade my 98SE until I purchased Norton Systemworks 2002, for the antivirus software, cleansweep, etc.. So I installed XP on a small 2 gb partition. (f: was the drive that it installed on, while my c: still had win98SE on it) Today I upgraded my 98SE to XP Pro, and now when my computer boots, it asks me what OS i would like to boot to
    Windows XP Pro
    Windows Xp Pro

    How can I set it up automatically to just boot to XP Pro? Also when I installed Systemworks 2002, it didn't install norton utilities, because my computer could not uninstall one WFSHELEX.DLL file, (or one file in norton utilities) how can I delete the utilies 2001 file and replace it with the 2002 files?

    Thanks again for all your help
    Steven

    I can't remember if this is the same on XP, but here it is for Windows 2000.

    I have XP Pro at home and will be able to verify this later.

    Anyway:

    Right click My Computer >> Properties >> Advanced
    Click on Startup and Recovery.

    Make sure the first one is selected as default and you cn check the box and set it to show the options for 0 seconds.

    2 gig partition? ack, depending on how much RAM you have, you will run into trouble with only 2 gigs. thats not much

    If its anything like NT/2k, look for the boot.ini file. Usually located in the root C:/f:/whatever.
    In there, you will find the various startup options.

    The poster above me was correct about configuring it not to display, but if you want it displayed, but with only one XP, than follow what I just said
    --There's my 1.5 cents, now where is my change!?!?

    Thank you guys very much for your replies, as I decided that I would reformat my harddrive and do a clean install of WinXP Pro as this would alleviate a lot of the problems that I have been having with my computer lately.

    Thanks again

    Sounds like a good plan of action
