When I boot up after upgrading XP Home to XP Professional,
there's a black&white, dos-like screen that asks me Which
Operating System I want to use: the Recovery Console or XP
Professional. It counts down 25 seconds and then
automatically loads XP Proff. How can I remove this screen
from the boot process and just get to XP Proff.?

John,

Edit the Boot.ini and set the timeout to 0 or 1.

Hi John,

Go to Start/Run and type in: msconfig
Then go to the Boot.ini Tab and click on Check All Boot Paths. If you
receive a warning about a duplicate path: Do you want to remove, choose
yes.

Or...

Right click the My Computer icon/Properties/Advanced/Startup and
Recovery/Settings/System Startup/Edit.
