  1. Dual boot count down time change

    Where do I change the "count down" time on my dual boot screen?

    Start/Control Panel/System/

    Click on the "Advanced" tab and choose the "Settings" button.

    You can change the time counted down here here IF you are using Windows XP or 2000 (which I'm assuming you are).

    Alternatively, you can edit the seconds in the C:\boot.ini file. But this does the exact same thing.

    or you can manually edit the boot.ini file as well, which is what i prefer to do.
