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:

e.g.
[boot loader]
timeout=5
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
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"?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
