Readers Question : How To Organize Boot Menu And Manage Multiple OS

Yesterday, one of our reader “Marks85” asked us “How To Organize Boot Menu And Manage Multiple OS”. We are answering him here. But first, let me explain what he means. There are many guys who uses multiple operating system on their PC. The most common multiple installed OS’s are Windows 7 with Windows XP or Windows 7 with Ubuntu. If you are using multi boot, then before starting OS, user will be asked which one he wants to start. On that menu, you can select your preferred one or just wait for sometimes (10/20s) then the default OS will be started. But the ques is which one is marked as default. Mostly the OS you have installed later will work as preferred system. If you are a Windows 7 user who installed Linux OS recently and now fed up with this boring selecting (like our visitor did) then what will you do? Let’s get up.

Playing with OS is simple and you don’t need any Third-Party software for this. Simply start Windows and then from “Run” type “msconfig”  and press enter.


Run (1)

Now a new window will appear. Select “Boot” from the top navigation. Here you will see a list of all OS installed in your PC. Currently I only have one. select the OS you want to mark as default and click on “Set As Default”.

System Configuration (2)

If you want to remove an OS, then select that os and click on “Delete”.

System Configuration (3)

That’s simple, isn’t it? There’s some advanced options like “Safe Boot”……….we are not making you dizzy by explaining them right here, although we have a queue for this. So stay tuned and hope “Marks85” have got his answer. Thanks for staying with us. If you want to ask a question or feeling any problem, simply use this “Contact Form” to reach us.
