Go to Start > Run > Type "MSCONFIG" > Click OK


Switch to "BOOT.INI" tab, make sure "NOGUIBOOT" is unticked and applied.

Andy....I had a look and NOGUIBOOT was unticked, all 5 items in there are unticked. Should one of them be ticked ?

try ticking it, restarting, reticking it, then try, but i am suspecting that one of your files are missing. A BMP file probably, I will research.
