    My Computer (R Click) > Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Settings > Edit.

    A notepad opening boot.ini is got. Now close all open windows and dialogue boxes, yeah ALL! except the notepad of course. Now delete the lines that u dont need at boot and reboot.

    Each line that I am reffering to will look like
    Code:
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

    go to start > run . type msconfig
    goto the tab boot.ini
