I'm having a problem with an error caused by a failure re-installing Windows 2000. After the re-install failed, I got a boot-up menu with a choice of "Windows 2000 Setup or Windows 2000." How do I remove the boot-up menu and have my computer just normally boot up?
If the original installation of Windows 2000 is still working correctly, you can edit the BOOT.INI file -- a hidden file in the root directory of your boot drive -- which is a simple text file that contains the different boot entry references. Simply delete the line that has the "Windows 2000 Setup" reference in it. For more details on how to do this sort of thing, see
-- this document is actually for Windows XP, but the similarity of BOOT.INI in both OSes is enough that this advice also applies.
