I have 3. But i dont think I have an old os laying around.
It's so strange.

Could I install a new windows on one of the other drivers and then just move my old stuff to the new?
I can reinstall, no problem with that. Its just that I dont want to lose any data.


I also have rhe home premium install disk if that helps.

No, I mean how many are currently in your system that you flashed the BIOS update on? Please fill out your specs for us with this tool. System Info - See Your System Specs

Thank you man! It works now! I had as you said, another windows installed on another disk, so it started that one instead. I just had to change back to start the other one instead.

Yeah it sounded like that was what was going on. Make sure you mark your thread as solved.

Just as a side note; The BIOS can have a password as well as Windows but they are mutually exclusive. The BIOS is executed before Windows even starts loading. Reflashing the BIOS has no affect on a Windows password or vice-versa for that matter.

Also, check your Disk Manager. I suspect the old/other OS drive is marked "Active". The ONLY Active drive/partition should be the one that contains your current OS. Even if you delete the files, the drive may still contain a System Reserved partition marked Active. This can slow Windows boot, boot the wrong OS or error-out depending on whether the boot segment is present.
