  • cannot get past the ctrl+alt+delete screen

    I successfully installed Windows Server 2003 on my home PC with Windows XP Professional. On the boot screen it gives me the option of starting Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. When I start Windows Server 2003, it comes up with the "Welcome to Windows" screen and instructs to hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete to begin. When I hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete nothing happens. I must then reboot into XP. How can I get past this screen? Thanks for any help.
