I bought a new drive and XP Home. I put in a Windows98 startup floppy and was going to run "setup" in DOS mode. Found out you couldn't do that so I loaded XP off the CD.
Everything went fine, except I get a "Remove disks or other media. Press any key to restart" message AND when I booted up I noticed I had 2 boot choices XP and 98. I couldn't boot from the 98, obviously. I imagine it was there from the 98 floppy I had originally put in. I went into the boot.ini file and removed the last line C:\ = "Microsoft Windows" .
This seems to have corrected the multiple boot option problem, but my "Press any key to restart" problem remains. I've assumed that the 2 problems are related (98 startup floppy), but maybe not. I didn't have this problem with my old hard drive (Windows ME) so I don't think it's BIOS related. Any help will be appreciated.
