    hello folks,

    i have a dual boot system of win xp pro on one of my machines. one install is for my everyday tasks and is fully loaded. the other install is a barebones xp only install with just a mpeg-2 codec and various tmpegenc programs.

    the purpose of the barebones install is so that i can run video encoding software without having to worry about other programs siphoning resources while i am encoding and to avoid program conflicts that i was having while trying to encode with a fully loaded system.

    my question is that when i boot up my system and it comes to the screen where it asks me which install i would like to boot, is there anyway to change the boot order?

    right now the barebones install is on top and if i fail to choose the second install within 12 seconds it boots to that one instead of my everyday use install.

    thanks for any help.

    yeah, you can tweak the startup in the advanced tab of system properties. to get there go into the contral panel and double click on the system icon.
