My BIOS gives me that menu sometimes, not sure why it does it for me..., but you might be hitting F8 too early.

You win the cherry,It is a fast F8 that makes the menu pop up hit ESC and hit F8 again bingo you have your Win-XP menu :).Just wanted to see how fast it took to get an answer good Job "Nothinman"
