Alright, heres the scoop..

a friend of mine was having problems with his PC, i hooked his HD up to mine to format it through mine, this went fine.

hes using XP Pro, im using home.

now, every time i start my PC up, it asks if i want to boot XP Pro or XP Home, it defaults to pro an counts down from 28 seconds, then if i dont tell it to boot Home Editiion, it will error andi have to restart.

my question is: how can i get this to stop asking me for the XP Pro and just boot like normal.

You need to edit the boot.ini file (normally on the root of c:)  and delete the entery for xp pro.
