1. Disconnect all external device like printers scanner etc. Other than keyboard and mouse there should not be any device connected.
2. If you get the Windows XP logo and then screen turn blank follow the following steps:
a. Tap F8 as soon as you turn on your computer. Under adavance option select Last Known Godd configuration. If that does resolve select safe mode from advance menu. Login as administrator. If the system boots up, click start - run and type msconfig and click OK

b. Clcik on the services tab. Put a check mark on Hide all microsoft services and then click disable all
c. Click the startup tab on top and click disable all.
d. Click Apply , close and restart the computer

If the problem is something else plese give the detail so that I can guide your properly.

Thanks

Hi smooth,

Try this, attempt a reboot, look for the first DOS option you can choose(F button "enter setup").

This screen goes by quickly so be ready to hit that button - F?. Once in DOS navigate to boot options>choose safe mode>save changes and exit>reboot. Once your OS is up go immediately to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose a date before problem started and click next/continue/ok. Once the system restores,reboot>enter DOS environment>choose normal boot>save changes and exit> hopefully cured.

Winfast boot sequence problem


Boot sequence problem? You set the boot sequence permanently in the Bios or System Setup. Normally when you boot the system the screen will tell you what key to hit to get into the Bios or Systems Setup.

You can set the boot sequence temporarily (just for the current boot cycle) by watching the screen when you boot and it will tell you which key to hit to change the boot sequence or boot order.

How to remove Multiboot Option in Windows


If under various circumstances you had to install a second Windows OS on the same system, you should have already met the dual boot option. It will pop up before booting the system permitting the user to select which OS will boot.

Boot.ini, the house of the dual boot option Boot.ini is a system file found in the system root. Because it has a major importance for the booting process.so we have to edit this boot.ini file to remove multiboot popups.

How to edit Boot.ini

1.Go to Start Click on Run
2.Type msconfig.

Once the system configuration window pops up, you will notice that Boot.ini has its own tab. Select that tab and where you see "timeout," set it to a lower or higher value. Remove/Add Operating Systems in the dual boot menuThis is the main issue.

Step 1:Right click on My Computer icon and select Properties.

Step 2:From the properties window go to Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Settings.

Here, you can both edit the timeout value and modify the Boot.ini file by clicking Edit. If you remove the second operating system from Boot.ini, the dual boot option won't appear before booting.

Boot Problems


Hi,

PXE means it will only boot while connected to the network,

You need to change the bois From network boot to Hard drive boot.

The system doesn't see a hard drive inside,

it thinks it is booting from the network only,

it boots to a server like this.

It is called a dumb terminal
