Skip Operating System selection on boot

Skip Operating System selection on boot

First make sure your windows is set not to hide "protected oporating system files" (by going to Control Panel\Folder Options\View tab, and ucheck the "hide protected oporating system files" checkbox)

Edit the boot.ini file in your c: drive, so that the timeout value will be "0" (timeout=0)

This will make your pc skip the os selection menu on startup.

If you ever want to use your other os you can change the value back to what it was in the first place.

    Same thing can be done by right clicking on the My Computer link on your start menu and choose Properties. Navigate to the Advanced Tab and select Start Up and Recovery Settings. Uncheck the box fofr Time to display operating systems.
