The notepad boot.ini file looks like this one

http://lh4.ggpht.com/ciprahkapa/RwYQCqUnrQI/AAAAAAAAAIg/q9E-gZ6W_L8/change%5B3%5D.jpg

Your default operating system is:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

as shown in:

default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS

You'll see the second line containing

multi(1)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional"

or other operating system like Windows Vista

You have to delete this second line from multi..... to the end of the line that contain a second boot of your windows

Then click File Menu > Save
Close the notepad file (boot.ini)

Also refer to this information for some explanations to understand more about boot.ini file

Been having this problem for 2 months.. computer is turned off... have been rebooting from CD in drive for 1 year... harddrive tired and cannot boot up by itself... lately cannot get to any Recovery mode,...


If you have a Windows XP CD, follow these steps.

1. Boot from the CD and start the installer
2. Choose to install onto the already formatted partition with the unbootable Windows, but opt to leave the existing filesystem and any other OSes alone. Choosing this will require you to create another folder for Windows to avoid writing over the existing installation. I usually call the new folder "WINXP."
3. Install Windows as you would normally, you'll need a Product Key but you can actually use your personal key on someone else's computer with no danger to you losing it or being accused of piracy, I'll explain this later.
4. Boot the NEW Windows XP install. Do not "Activate" or "register," you're going to be deleting this copy of Windows from the machine if all goes well.
5. Edit the BOOT.INI on the hard drive from the original installation of Windows with the corrupted HAL. This file should be in C:\ (may be hidden)

Sample BOOT.INI for XP Pro
Microsoft wrote:[boot loader]
timeout=10
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT

6. Go to C:\WINXP\system32\hal.dll (where "WINXP" is the folder you installed the second copy of Windows XP) and copy it from the new Windows to C:\WINDOWS\system32\hal.dll (or wherever you installed Windows XP originally, I use "WINDOWS" but some people use strange folder names for their XP) and overwrite any file there. The new hal.dll is uncorrupt and newly regenerated. The file is specific to each machine's hardware configuration and we needed to rebuild it. The installer did that for us with the new installation.
7. Try rebooting your computer to see if you can get into your OLD Windows installation. If you can, congratulations!
8. DELETE the "WINXP" folder (or wherever you put your new Windows install).

True Vector


Click the Start button. Choose Run. Type in msconfig, then click OK. In the window that comes up, click the tab Startup (on the top line). Look for TrueVector Service and uncheck the box next to it. Don't change anything else. Click OK. The next time you start the computer, Msconfig will pop up to tell you you've made a change. Tell it not to start next time and close the window.
That should do it.
By the way, you said you DELETED Zone Alarm. You can't just delete a program. You need to remove it by going to Control Panel and then Add/Remove Programs. Otherwise there will be remnants of the program that might still try to run.

When I boot up my computer before windows xp loads it asks which operating system I want to run,and it gives me 2 choices WINDOWS XP HOME, or, WINDOWS XP HOME. You use the up and down arrows to select...


simply you can remove the second option in the boot.ini.

go to the or right click the my computer at the desktop and the properties. and then click"advance TAb" in the start up and recovery, click "setting" and then "edit"

you will see this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Timeout=30 change to: 0

and then delete this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
after deleting you must save it.

and then restart the system
