Hi Dsnette, good news, well kinda, The original hard drive was toast. The second hard drive was also screwed. The third hard drive is good and I loaded windows, updated it, and loaded my virus and spyware protections. Everything went well. My only issue now is that every time I start the computer I get a screen to choose an operating system. It list two XP Home Editions. So, I went back and loaded windows again doing the full (as opposed to the quick) format and loaded windows again. Still when I start it up it shows two XP Home options. What do I need to do to get rid of one of the installs? Thanks for your help by the way. It has been invaluable. You are Awesome!
