hey,

i just recently installed windows xp on my computer, and it went through all the way without problems. however, after the final reboot prior to beginning the operating system, i encountered a blue screen that said something like...."windows has been shut down to prevent further damage to your computer....if you installed any software or harware, remove it and then reboot." no matter what mode (safe or normal) that i start windows with, this blue screen appears. so basically i have no access to my computer anymore. any ideas? also, for some reason, when the computer boots up, there are two choices....microsoft windows and microsoft windows xp. i dont know how to get rid of that either. any help would be appreciated.

Howdy:

Okay.. sounds like you did a complete new install rather than a repair or format/re-install thus the two options..

First of all, is this XP cd an original or a copy your friend made for you (totally different setup requirements) ??

Sorry, but we do NOT give any support to pirated software of any kind.. Get a legal copy of XP and we can go from there..
