You have to change your boot.ini
file to do this:
Go in to your My Computer's Properties >> Go to Start
>> Right-Click on My Computer
>> Select Properties
>> Click the Advanced
tab >> Select Settings
in the Startup and Recovery
It is best to save your original boot.ini
file>> Click Edit
>> Under File
select Save As...
(select a location easily remembered) >> Close NotepadPlease take extreme precaution in this next step. Changing this file could make your computer un-bootable. :
Now it's time to modify your boot file >> Click Edit
again>> Delete the line that has Recovery Console/fastdetect in it (the whole line) >> Save your new boot file and re-boot
You should have a boot file similar to this one...
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Media Center Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
This is the only way I know how to do this, if there is an easier or safer way can someone please post it.
And dc3 is right if you don't feel confident in changinng your boot file then I wouldn't worry about three seconds.
