Remove the list of operating systems at startup

For various reasons, you may have the choice between several operating systems at boot the PC.

  • Right click on "My Computer" -> Properties -> Advanced tab -> choose "Settings" under the category "Startup and Recovery"
  • Now, under the category "Starting system", uncheck the box to "Show the list of operating systems for:

This is the most effective way to alleviate the problem, but it can also decrease the time to display the list of operating systems (30 seconds by default).

Note: Be careful not to touch anything else in particular, failing to stop seeing his computer normally start or not start at all!

  • Disable the screen of choice when you start your PC does not uninstall the other operating system (that you no longer use). To do this, go to the partition or system is installed and delete all files system that OS (Windows, Program Files, Documents and settings). So, before making this move, remember to retrieve your personal files and folders on the system.
