    Hi, I dont know if I should post my problem here, if I am in the wrong spot maybe someone will direct me to the right spot,anyway long story short the other day I could not get into windows ,I tried everything and in the end I stuck my windows cd in to see if it would fix it and lo and behold it did in a few mins ,prob was that it lost the default boot os anyway its fixed now but my os's are now called windows 7 and vista RECOVERED, ok I can live with that, but since the fix it is taking forever to boot into either system, so I ticked the box in the msconfig section[OS BOOT INFORMATION] to see what was happening, and after it loads the drivers it just seems to sit there for ages and then at the last min before it goes into windows screen I see a few lines like[ file system clean], as if it had being checking ALL my discs first before boot, might there be a TUT on how to stop what ever its doing that I can't find and if so if someone could show me the way that would be great THANKS.

    If I understood well, you have enabled both detecthal and 2 CPUs in msconfig.

    To fix that, boot from your Windows 7 DVD and select repair computer.
    Then use the command prompt option under repair, to enter command prompt.

    In command prompt, type:

    bcdedit /deletevalue {default} numproc

    ...and reboot to see if its fixed. if this doesn't fix your problem, you can also try typing

    bcdedit /deletevalue {default} detecthal

    Hi thanks for reply I have the CPU box ticked for four[NUMBER OF PROCESSORS] and thats all,The box I ticked to see if I could see anything was ,MSCONFIG/BOOT/ OS BOOT INFORMATION at the bottom of the page ,it shows you what is booting but it is not very informative, so do you think I should still do as you said. THANKS
