    Question. I deleted windows.old and thought that this might take care of
    the option to boot to Old Windows (that is paraphrasing) as the system
    starts up, but it has not. How can I get rid of that so the system just
    boots straight in.

  3. Windows.old does not have anything to do with your boot options. Your boot
    options are based on Vista Setup detecting a bootable non-Vista Windows
    partition. Windows.old exists because you did a Custom Installation on a
    partition that had a previous Windows system.

    I understand. Thank you for the info.

    Where is this feature in Vista? Before you could click a button to edit the
    file, but now that button is gone.

    Follow Jimmy's advice. BCDEdit is not an easy option to use.
