I have to operating systems on my BIOS one is windows xp professional and the other says windows xp professional setup. The default is the windows xp professional setup. If I dont click up to go the windows xp professional than it will take me to a screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner. Is there a way to delete windows xp professional setup?


I had gone into Control Panel>>System>>Advanced>>Startup and Recovery>>Settings>>Edit and I deleted windows xp professional setup than saved the boot file. When I rebooted the computer it still has two operating systems up and goes to something called Windows (default) which is pretty much the same as windows xp professional setup but with a fancy new name. :) If anyone would know how to at least change the order so that I don't automatically go straight to the default which in turn makes me reboot the computer it would be very helpful.

Hello ,

Go to Control Panel > System > Advanced > under Startup and Recovery click settings > under Default Operating System choose the correct

option > remove the checkmark for " Time to display list of Operating System"

See if that will help.

Ya before when I tried to delete part of the boot file it also deleted the options of setting the default. I was able to Recover the system back to where it had the options in boot of windows xp professional or windows xp professional setup. I went in and tried that and it worked. Thanks for the help. :)
