    Lightbulb Dual-boot XP / Vista: choosing the main system

    If you installed Windows Vista after Windows XP or an earlier version, you've probably noticed that when you start the computer, the default operating system is Windows Vista. If you want to change this setting it is relatively simple. Here's how.

    1. First you have to open Control Panel

    2. Now I suggest you to Select Classic View. The option is proposed in the left side of the window. Search then "System" icon and click it.



    3. In the new window that appears, a menu on the left called "Tasks" contains several links, click on link "Advanced System Settings".

    4. The System Properties window appears. Then click on the "Advanced Settings" then in the "Startup and Recovery," click "Settings".

    5. From there you can select the default operating system; leaving Microsoft Windows Vista, or select "Previous Version of Windows" to start with Windows XP as a priority.

    If you are using Vista and are Dual booting with any OS, the best solution for customizing the menu is - EasyBCD. Awesome software, can handle OS X; Linux & BSD with Vista.

    It keeps Vista's boot menu as the main.

    Thumbs up

    thanx for your comments and thanx DeborahJ for your impressions about my website .

    You can use EasyBCD as boot loader but I would recommend it to those who wants to quickly boot right into Linux, Mac OS X, or BSD, and for Windows XP this is much more practical procedure, but anyway thanx for your comment.
