I want to use a 3dr party boot loader, how do I keep the xp bootloader from showing up? thx
By doing 2 things:
Edit c:\boot.ini (will be a hidden/read only file)
Take care of changing this with only 1 line with the XP os on it:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
Also in this file you can change the value of the timeout (here 5 seconds)
DONT COPY ABOVE SAMPLE OF boot.ini: edit yours instead:
the 0's and 1's in between specify the disk/parition etc so that can differ per computer...
Changing this to a wrong parameter may render your XP unbootable
go to device manager and select the advanced tab, under advanced u will see startup and recovery. open that and untick "time to display list of operating systems" Job done without changing files or registry
So just set to "0"?
