Choice of operating systems on startup

  chrismuir 15:25 02 Feb 2003


When I switch my PC on, I get a choice of operating systems:

1. Microsoft Windows XP home
2. Microsoft Windows

I recently did a fresh install of win XP, but I have an upgrade version rather than a full version, so I had to put in my win 98 CD as part of the install process.

Is there any way to remove the second option and for the PC to boot to win XP all the time?

Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

In Control Panel, start the Performance and Maintenance tool, and then click System.
On the Advanced tab, click Startup and Recovery.

Make sure that the default OS is set to the one you want and change the time-out to zero seconds.

Do you mean that you have a duel boot system, or only XP, but you are showing the option for an alternative?
