  • Defualt startup behaviour of XP Pro

    I'm new to all this stuff so apologies for any mistakes I make

    I have just reinstalled XP Pro on my desktop and all is fine except that when I now turn on my PC, the default OS it starts is "Microsoft Windows XP Professional Setup" rather than "Microsoft Windows XP Professional". I know that I can <Arrow Up> to get to the choice I want but this is a pain and means I can't leave it unattended to start.

    Now I'm sure you clever guys and gals out there know where I'm going wrong - If so please help, it's driving me crazy !!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Right Click my computer-> properties -> advanced - Start up and Recovery Settings and then select the default operating system you want. You can also change how long you want it to say on that screen for etc
