Windows Boot selector help - urgent

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I am having a problem with my windows boot selector. I have a half installed copy of windows 64bit, and also XP Pro. The time to select the operating system must be set at about 2 seconds, and I need to know how to change this, and how to default it to the correct XP Pro setup.

Can someone please help me, as the wife is nagging me to death about it.

Thanks for your help

Do this:

- Control Panel
- System
- Advanced
- Startup and Recovery Settings
- Select the default operating system (if somehow does not work, hit edit, and manually make changes.. Be careful !)
