Troubleshooting

Boot Menu Isn’t Displayed

When I start up my PC, I don’t get a choice of operating systems. Instead, an operating system boots up directly.

What has happened is that an installation program overwrote the normal XP boot loader (e.g. Linux may have installed the Linux Loader LILO). To restore the Windows loader, boot your computer from your Windows XP installation CD and follow the instructions to repair a damaged Windows XP installation. The only repair options you need to select at this point are the options to repair the startup environment and the boot sector. Your emergency disk will come in handy as the repair mechanism uses it to find your Windows XP partition.
