Default Style XP - Bootscreen problem!

Using Style XP I tried a customized boot screen but after a while i got sick of it a wanted the original Windows XP bootscreen back, so in Style XP i choose restore ntoskrnl file, which gave me back the original XP bootscreen but every time i boot up i get a OS selection screen which has two options which do the exact same thing (Windows XP Professional (Bootscreen) & Windows XP Professional).
After it counts down for 30 seconds it automatically selects one unless i choose, but its really annoying and if i switch my comp on and do something else for a sec while it boots up it takes longer.
Any ideas on how to get rid of the OS selection screen?

I wanna do a format soon anywayz but id like to know how to get rid of it.

Thanks dudes

Do both work?

Please post your boot.ini content

start>run
type: c:/boot.ini

You can edit your boot.ini.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional (bootscreen)" /fastdetect /KERNEL=kernel1.exe
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

That looks like something can be alted or deleted in that stuff...do i just deleted one or the other?

That is the one that looks funny to me. I'd wait for someone to back me up.

In the future, don't use StyleXP for your boot screens. Instead, use BootSkin. Much easier, much more boot screens, and very easy to uninstall/disable. You can download boot screens for free at www.wincustomize.com and you can download BootSkin for free at the link below.

A while back I had a boot screen nightmare. StyleXP was the program. It totally locked me out of my system. I choose not to mess with boot screens as I do not want to reformat!

Just a thought...If you pick the 2nd one does it boot to the default boot screen? If yes, you really don't need to edit the boot.ini. Just do as I said before...Right Click My Computer>Properties>Advanced>Start Up and Recovery>settings. And choose the 2nd one for default. Then Uncheck time to select operating system.
Get rid of StyleXP. I use Starskin for themes...not free.
