desire to boot-up to Win2kpro without a choice of Windows

by gklein / May 7, 2004 2:54 AM PDT

Win2kpro; and Win98; 512ram; Pent4;
When booting up I desire to boot straight to Win2k without picking a choice.
Is there a way without a boot-up manager program ?
If not, is there basic a free one available ?

You can get such an effect by editing BOOT.INI

BOOT.INI at www.google.com seems to find articles about it. Pick one that you can use.

another way is by going to Start > Settings > Control Panel > System > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery. There, select "Microsoft Windows 2000 professional" and then uncheck the check box labeled Display list of operating systems for ..... seconds.

This way is easier coz if you mess up the Boot.ini file, there will be more problems than you want.
