    It would depend on the boot loader. If it is the windows one, then that can only be done from windows. If it was a boot loader provided by the BIOS then it would make sense for the to put the settings in the BIOS.

    Yes, it's the windows loader. I had a poke about in the BIOS and couldn't find any relevant options but thanks anyway Teho.

    I'll have a look at what Stephen suggested - ta for that.

    Yep, Steve is right. It's in the control panel he mentions. You can set up the boot menu to link to other OSs if needed and change the length of time to delay before booting.

    An easier way to get to it is to right click "My Computer" and select Properties. Then go to the Advanced Tab, and select Settings under the Startup and Recovery section. You can then change the time delay for the boot menu.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Recently, I bought a new laptop to replace my old one and it came with Vista Home Premium.

    Personally, I detest Vista, but it's handy to have it, as I could do with learning stuff about Vista as I work for a software company and our customers are starting to get Vista PCs.

    My main PC though, is Windows XP, and I intend to stick with XP for as long as I can get away with it (so I'll probably be the last person on earth to have XP in the year 2070)

    If it's not an Amiga, it has to be an Apple, so it's OSX all the way or Linux if I ever get around to it

    You will never see me owning and using an Apple! Never! Ever! Mac OS is the devil!
