Windows (Setup) multiboot problem

Hello to anyone reading this. I seem to be experiencing a problem whose solution dwells outside my range of knowledge. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

It all started when i tried upgrading my Windows XP Professional. After the "dynamic update" step, a notification screen told me that i was missing a file called "af0ugmvs.sys". I (foolishly) opted to skip the file and continue with the setup. The computer restarted to a multiboot screen with the options "Windows XP" and "Windows XP (setup)" with the default at the latter. Now, the computer shows the multiboot screen every time.

I really hope that someone can help me with this problem. I also apologize if i'm not clear with my description of the problem.

Thank you.

Hi rdino...

Couple of questions for you.

Did the upgrade ever complete successfully?

What operating system are you currently running? XP Home or XP Pro?

No, the update did not complete. Upon restart, it just notified me again that af0ugmvs.sys was missing nad it didn't go any further than that. I'm running XP Professional, by the way.

Thank you.

Hello. I would like to inform you that i've fixed the problem. I edited boot.ini (after creating a backup) and that seemed to sort everything out.
Anyway, thanks for your attention. :whistling:
