Chapter 1.  Installing and Booting Windows 2000  > Change the boot menu options

1.8. Change the boot menu options

Windows 2000 displays a boot menu that lets you choose which operating system to boot on a multi-boot system or to boot the repair console if installed. Depending on your preferences, you might want to change which option boots by default and how long the menu is displayed before the default option is booted. You can change these options from the Windows 2000 GUI or modify the source of the options, boot.ini, within Windows 2000 or from a console prompt.

If you choose to modify the boot menu by editing boot.ini, make a backup of the file first in case you have problems editing the file. Also, keep in mind that you can modify the labels for each boot option by modifying boot.ini. For example, you might change "Windows 2000 Professional" to just "Windows 2000." Or you might change "MS-DOS" to "Windows 98."
