    How is the computer starting up if not using the Windows
    2000 boot manager? Using a third-party boot manager?

    Tell us what you're seeing and post the contents of boot.ini

    My 3 choices are:

    Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
    Microsoft Windows 2000 Recovery console
    Windows 2000 (default)

    My boot.ini file isas follows:

    [Boot Loader]
    Timeout=30
    [Operating Systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000
    Professional" /fastdetect
    C:\CMDCONS\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Recovery Console"
    /cmdcons

    Items 1 and 3 are the same. I want to delete item 3.

    thanks

    You're missing the 'default=' line. Give this one a go.

    [Boot Loader]
    Timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
    [Operating Systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000
    Professional" /fastdetect
    C:\CMDCONS\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Recovery Console" /cmdcons

    think you have to reboot yr machine and get into BIOS to change yr boot
    selection.
