    Hi,
    This happen like 2 months ago and I didn't ask this on the forum.
    I have a CRAPY cpu, but it still work fine. Here is the problem when I boot up my cpu, before showing the long white progess bar of loading it show me to choose: linux, failsafe,and three other things to choose from linux, window, window1. So I choose window and it boot up the way it should be, the question is how do I remove that option there. I just want it to boot up to window automaticly, rather for me to choose. Can anyone help me here. Or you still don't understand me?
    Response ASAP
    Thanks

    This depends on the type of bootloader..

    You either use some graphical bootloader configuration utility in Linux or edit the configuration files (in Linux). Typical Linux bootloaders are GRUB and LILO. Look for files like /boot/grub/menu.lst or /etc/lilo.conf.

    If you want to get rid of the Linux bootloader completely then you will have to use the Windows CD/floppy to restore the original bootsector. Depends on the exact version of Windows you have.
