hey guys, i don't know if i put this in the right area but here i go.

I am dual booting XP and 7. when i start up, i have a menu to choose which OS I want. is there a way to get windows 7 to start up by default and just have a keyboard shortcut to get into XP? im trying to reduce my boot time. :D

Yeah I don't remember exactly right now but you can change the default select boot and the default OS. But yeah you can do that (not the keyboard shortcut, from what I know). Just set your time to something where you can press like the up key so you don't always boot into 7.

Change Default OS or This one has Pictures :D

Change Boot Time

Good to know when I throw 7 on as a Dual boot ;)
