yesterday I had to reboot my w2k machine, only to get a inaccessable_boot_device dump error. I couldn't figure out why. I got pissed off and left the room for awhile forgetting to turn my xbox off. So I went back in and turned it off, then for the hell of it, tried the computer again. It booted perfectly! So I did some trouble shooting and it turns out that if the xbox is turned on before my computer is, the computer doesn't recognize it on the network or something and thinks it may be a boot device. This problem only exists when the xbox is sitting at the EvoX menu, with a game running, there isn't a problem. My best guess is that since EvoX gives access to the ethernet port with an IP address, the computer tries to use that drive. Freaky. But at least my computer isn't f-ed in the end. Just wanted people to know if they started to run into that problem.

Certainly sounds like he has SOME type of service running that's expecting to see an IP on the network. Certainly you could hold down SHIFT when you're almost to the windows GUI, and it will bypass the 'startup' folder.

Or, look in HKLM/software/MS/windows/currentversion/run in the registry and see what kind of crap you have running at startup.

Does your motherboard have an onboard network card? If so, go into your BIOS and turn of the Network Boot.

Thats the best I can think of...
