Win XP Pro safe mode screen does not display
Posted on 2009-05-10
I'm running Win XP Pro, SP2.
I recently upgraded my motherboard and cpu, but used the same HDDs. The MB is ASUS P5Q-SE2.
After I login, the system loads the startups. As this process reaches the end of loading startups, an DOS like error page with flashes so fast I can't possible read it and the system reboots.
When I boot the machine, I hit F8 to go into save mode. I do not get the widows boot options menu. Instead, I get a list of the 3 HDD and I must select which HDD to boot from.
Any ideas on how get the win boot options menu?
Would doing a windows system repair fix this?
