Sorry...I was helping in chat and still haven't gotten a notification of your reply. :whistling:

Ok...go get your data and move it to the new user account that you just set up and we'll install the drivers. :blink:

I'm ahead of you. I already started installing drivers. Started following directions from before. Haven't moved data yet. I'll holler when I'm finished with drivers and data.
Thank you so much for getting me this far.

Imoved all the stuff in my docs. All drivers are in except for the one we had trouble finding before. When I try to put that in from the Intel CD, I get a message that says

"If I select yes, the current wireless installation update, Intel Proset for the wired adapterswillbe removed from the machine. Without this portion of IntelProset, the wired adapter will remain functional,but can only be managed using the appropriate properties tab. To use the wired diagnostics provided by Intel Proset,a separate installation of Intel Proset for wired connectionsis necessary after the current wireless update is complete."

I didn't get that before. I think I didn't open all of the envelopes before though in the zipped driver download. ????? Thoughts, please???

Also, removed that line from boot log that we did before.
When I boot, I get screen asking which Windows XP I want to use.

Copy and paste your boot.ini here for me...we've still got a system to remove.

This is the intel driver? Or a network driver install. From the cd or from a download? Ya lost me somewhere... :whistling:

As you can see, i removed the last line as you told me to do before.

Here is c & p:
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS1
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS1="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect


I lost myself somewhere too. I did all of my drivers this time from online. when I opened wireless lan one, there were other folders I am not sure if I opened before. Anyway, the network controller one is still missing. So I tried from the Intel CD, which is when I got te message. Does that make any sense?

Remove the line of text in red below:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS1
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS1="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect

Go ahead and install it from the cd and let's see what we get. We can always roll it back.

Thanks to you I am getting so good! I solved the driver problem by myself! Uninstalled, Installed from CD. Still didn't fix so I let it look for it on the CD and it found it! Amazing.
Also took care of the last line of boot.ini
What next??

You're a very quick study, indeed. :whistling:

Open Local Disk C: and delete the Windows folder and the Windows0 folder.
