customcomp...

There are a couple of ways to approach this. Probably the easiest way (unless disk space is a real issue) is to select a default OS. To do that, go to Control Panel (Classic View) and double click on "System"...From the "Advanced" tab choose "Settings" under "Startup and Recovery"...in the drop down menu, select the operating system you want to start and click "Ok"...Exit Control Panel and reboot.

Option 2 involves editing system "ini" files. I'd try the first option first.
