Dual boot of Vista and Windows 7 Beta

Posted: 01-26-2009, 09:42 PM
I have Vista Home Premium, Sp 1. Recently, I downloaded and installed on a
separate partition, Windows 7 Beta. Things work fine, however when my
computer starts, Windows 7 is on top of the booting choice, and unless I
move it down to Vista Home Premium, it boots into the Win 7 Beta. My
question is how can I change the position of the booting choices, so that
Vista Home Premium boots up first, if no choice is made?

TIA for any advice. Jef

Under Windows 7:
1) Start/Administrative Tools/System Configuration
2) Click on "Boot" Tab
3) Click on the non-Win7 choice in the list (choose the installation
you want for default)
4) Click on "Set as Default" button
5) "Ok" out

DONT MESS with anything else!

If you want more time before Windows Starts up, set time on same page
