Hello,
I recently reinstalled widows XP Professional on my desk top. Now when I start the computer I get a blackscreen message asking weather I want to use Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Professional set up to start my computer. If I chose XP Professional the computer boots normally, if I chose the setup it goes to a blue screen installation window. If I f3 quit out of that window I need to reboot. How can I remove those setup files without having to reinstall the whole system again as it takes several hours with all of the servicepack updates you have to go through?

hi there,

you did not format the hard drive completely

you installed windows on an existing version

press start+r

run will open

now type msconfig

on boot tab

select default windows and delete the other one

apply and exit

Thanks
