This is a common annoyance some people has encounter after reinstalling Windows.
The problem is that everytime you turn your computer ON, or restart it, you have a list of Windows you can boot from....even though you "know" there is only one.
First of all look into the BOOT.INI file, and make sure you kmow the version that is currently active.
You can safely delete the other two.
Next time you reboot, your computer should start as usual.

PS
To bring up the BOOT.INI
Go to Run, and type CMD, press Enter
at the end of the string type: cd"space".. (two dots)
Keep doing this until you get to C:/
now type BOOT.INI

A notepad document will open, and you'll see all the options you see at boot up.
Just delete the ones you know you don;t need, and save that notepad document.

Restart your pc, and that is all..!!

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\DRIVERS\isapnp.sys


This usually occur when unexpectedly deleted or corrupted the files cause by a virus or a third party software. All you have to do is repair your OS using your installation CD(XP) and do not reformat your HDD. Reboot your PC using your XP follow the instruction needed then when it come to the Repair, Do Not Repair, or Don't do anything choose Repair and follow again the instruction.

Try this, when you start your next reinstall dont format right away. first delete the partition and recreate it, after that do your format. You could have a bad sector and formating it is causing an issue.

Huh? You can reformat the drive...use a Linux LiveCD; just buy a magazine at the store and use that to do the deed and/or install an alternate OS.

DELETED MY SYSTEM FILE FROM C DRIVE


hi !

if you know how to slave your Hard Disk, try to slave it on other PC with the same windows OS you have. Then the file that you accidentally deleted to your Hard disk, OR you may clone all the System file in the Windows folder " C:\ WINDOWS ". in that way your OS will run back to it's normal process.

During the windows installation, did you delete the partition, recreate the partition, format, then reinstall?

Sometimes viruses can last through reformats, but deleting the whole partition, then recreating it can fix the problem.
