I have received the screen shot.
Stuart S: You have mentioned that in choice B you get 5 choices, by using down arrow key select Last Know Good Configuration and press enter.

Justin Long: every choice goes back to that first screen
Stuart S: Okay.
Stuart S: Do you have WinXP startup disc with you?
