Specifying the Default Operating System

As you may have figured out by this time, you can run another operating system on your computer in addition to Windows NT, such as Windows 95 or DOS. These other operating systems do not come with Windows NT Workstation; you have to acquire and install them yourself. When you have more than one operating system loaded on your computer, you can choose which operating system Windows NT Workstation should load by default. This can be useful if you know you will be working with a specific operating system over a period of time, and you would like that operating system automatically loaded when you start the computer.

Note

After you have installed Windows NT on a computer with another operating system, when the computer boots, Windows NT is always the first operating system listed on the boot menu. The content and order of items in the boot menu is determined by a special file named BOOT.INI.
