Hello,

I have recently reformatted my aspire one with windows xp home edition from a USB bootable flash drive. Everything went well as expected except for one thing.

When I turn on my computer, the acer logo appears then a page appears again which asks me to choose whether to start windows xp or repair it using USB. I have to always click the start windows xp before the windows logo appears and everyhting in windows is alright. I dont know how to fix this so that after the acer logo appears, windows logo comes next then desktop.

Please help

Have you tried the "repair" option?

Yes i have tried the repair option but after reboot I now have three options. Two options were the same - windows xp home and one - still the repair windows from USB. If i try it again i will have another of the same option.

Check the boot.ini file. There should only be 1 line under the 'operating system' section. It should look similar to this:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
