When I turn the PC on, I get a message "Please select the operting system to start:

Microsoft Windows 2000 professional
Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Setup

I have to choose the top and press enter to start my computer.  It used to start automatically without this message.  If I do not choose the top, it automatically chooses the bottom.  Then I have to turn the PC off and on again to that message.  Your help is appreciated.   Mie Morikuni

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows 2000 Setup" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
