What just befroe the Windows Xp loading screen comes up you press f8 and you get a list of boot devices...thats not right. Are you sure that you are not hitting f8 too early druing your motherboard POST.

If you can not get this to work go to Run-->Type msconfig--> Click on the Boot tab --> Select safe boot --> Click ok and you will be prompted to restart your computer. Then once you want to get out of that safe mode just go back in and unselect safe boot and restart.

As long as you are in msconfig you can look at what applications you have running at boot up in the Startup Tab and you can clean some of that crap up.
