Long story short : Got a new computer and did a fresh install of XP Pro as I prefer it to XP Home. I now have 2 problems :
1: I did the install without any issues however when I rebooted it asked me to select XP Pro or XP home as the OS. So I reinserted the XP Pro disc to recheck and see if I had accidentally partitioned the drive and was running 2 OS's ; I am not.
However there are 3 items in the list, the formated section that has XP Pro on it and 2 smaller ones 8 meg and 39 meg respectively that are unassigned. How can I consolidate them?
Now I get it asking me to install xp pro everytime I reboot in addition to asking me if I want to run Home or Pro. How do I remove the choices and make the damn thing boot properly?
2: While getting myself in this mess I am unable to install a driver for the Sm Bus Controller..the file for the damn thing is a floppy disc image ! How can I get the driver off it and install it? I ordered my new system without a floppy like a dumbass..any possible way I can get it burned to a cd?
Thanks for helping this dumbass out,
