    Ok maybe $0, but the fact is noone can every help my problems here, represent OT (and yourself) and fix this... or not :naughty:

    Anyways I installed a new motherboard (asus) and the computer runs great NOW. But I installed (and it failed to install) another OS, after which I installed XP proffesional but now during boot up it asks me to select between proffesional or the other OS. If I select the other OS it says failed, but how the fuck do I get rid of it!?!!?1one!

    Danke

    To get rid of the OS option:

    Start -> Run -> msconfig -> BOOT.INI tab -> remove whichever OS you don't want

    If you want to continue to dual boot that's a different solution.

    yeah well if your dual booting... and you want to get rid of that other option... just repartition your drive so you only load with one OS.

    i think i had this problem a while ago and fixed it by the boot.ini method
    or was told to and it ended up working itself out(had some problems with SATA drives and windows.. long story)

    $5 we can't fix it? That's like the easiest problem ever to fix.

    No kidding - just who were you asking before you asked OT? Your grandma's bingo club?
