Boot option screen
I upgraded to Vista Home Premium from my 2005 MCE. Now I am presented with a
black boot screen that gives me three options:
1. Previous Windows Version
2. Windows Vista
3. Recovery

I thought I had over written the XP verion (and deleted the Windows.old
file) how can I get the computer to boot directly to Vista and not this
screen?

Also once I select Vista, it just seems to take a little longer than it
should to boot

Thanks

Re: Boot option screen
goto Control panel ---->system ------->advanced system settings------->
startup and recovery , press the settings button, u will see below the
default operating system as Microsoft vista, leave it amd below u will see a
select button saying time to display...........

Remove the mark, ie unselect it & close it.

next time when u boot u will not be asked for which OS to boot.

Re: Boot option screen
You are in WACKY land.

For some reason the final clean-up did not take place. Maybe a hard
shutdown on last boot.

Anyhow, make sure you aren't missing any files. If you are, dig them out of
Windows.old
When you are ready to dump that, use the Disk Cleanup Wizard and check that
option.

As for the menu, Within Vista open an elevated CMD prompt.
(Find the CMD in the start menu, right click and choose run as Admin)
use the BCDEDIT command. Not easy.
BCDEDIT /? for instructions.
