Hi everyone, i have just recently changed my PC to dual boot Win 2000 or XP on the 1 drive, all is going good , but if possible i would like to cut down the 30 second wait at start of selection of what OS you may want to use.
at startup.
It automaticaly starts XP at the end of the 30 seconds, and most of the time i use XP, so i am wondering if anyone knows a registry tweak i could use to cut down that time a bit, if thats possible, ofcourse.
thanks

Run`msconfig.exe and under the boot.ini tab there's a field to enter a new timeout value in seconds.
