Hello. Thanks for the help yesterday. Got another question about dual booting. I have mostly run WinXP. But I did install Vista Home Premium and fooled around with it. But didn't like it much so uninstaled it. When I installed Win7 it must have found enough dregs to decide I wanted Dual Boot, even though I don't. In WinXP you just modify the boot.ini file. I don't see anything familier. I want to go straight to Win7.

So you want to remove XP from Boot Menu ? It would be better if we just disable it.

We will be editing Boot Configuration Data using BCDEDIT tool.
Warning : Make a backup of Boot Configuration Data (BCD) first. Improper use of this command line tool may render your computer un-bootable.

To make a backup of BCD :
1. Type cmd in Start Menu search box. Right-click on cmd.exe and select Run as administrator
2. In command prompt type, bcdedit /export c:\backup. This would save your BCD to c:\backup.
If later you want to restore BCD, type bcdedit /import c:\backup after booting from Windows 7 DVD.

You can follow these steps to disable dual boot menu :

1. Boot into Windows 7.
2 . Open command prompt with admin privileges. To do this, click on Start Menu, type cmd in search box, right-click on cmd.exe and select Run as administrator.
3. In the command prompt type these pressing Enter after each line :
bcdedit /default {current}
bcdedit /timeout 0
This will set Windows 7 as default OS and set timeout to 0 seconds. So at boot yuor computer will boot into Windows 7 straight.
4. Restart your computer.
