    When I reinstalled WindowsXP Pro after flashing my bios and reseting all of its info windows takes forever to load (it hangs for about 3 minutes right before the black booting screen, but i can see the image very dimmily) also now xp will only boot if the install cd is in the drive and first boot is set to CD. Any suggestions

    My System (if that could help):
    ABit KT7-RAID motherboard
    AMD Athleron 800mHg
    384 MB Kingston Ram
    80 gig Western Digital HD (with xp installed and second primary partition for a future OS)
    30 gig Western Digital HD (for pagefile, backups, and temp files)
    56x cdrom
    TDK cd writer
    Iomega Zip
    floppy

    Yes you could boot in to safe mode, but also risk a corrupted boot disk after all it does copy all the system files and if they're screwed then whats the point of copying them?

    What if, what if, what if.
    That must be coming from people whom are not here to help except be pessimistic and not HELPPPPPPPPPPP others here that need help. Isn't that what this place is all about. Or do you guys not have enough experience to figure other ways to get around these obstacles?

    I was always taught, if you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all.

    If you can boot into safe mode, conect to the neet. Go to www.boogdisk.com. Download one from there and try it out.

    If that doesn't work, let us know and see if we can't think of something else.

    You could also see if you your local computer store, or a friend can make one for you.

    Good lck,
