Chapter 10. Managing the Boot Process > Customizing the Boot Process

Customizing the Boot Process

Your basic boot options are defined when you install Windows NT. For example, the installation program automatically configures your system to dual-boot between Windows NT and the operating system you were running when you installed Windows NT. By default, when you boot your system, the boot options menu appears for 30 seconds. If you don't make a selection within that time, the boot loader loads the default operating system—Windows NT.

You're not stuck with those choices, however. You can modify the behavior of the boot options menu with the Windows NT Control Panel, and you can exercise still more control over the boot process by editing the BOOT.INI file.
