    The title says it all!

    I just upgraded from WinXP to Vista Premium UPGRADE.

    I thought I told the software to do a fresh install rather than saving
    any former settings.

    Perhaps I made the wrong selection.

    In any event, I'm tired of having to boot up the computer and
    select VISTA or FORMER OPERATING SYSTEM.

    Any way I can configure my computer to bypass that choice
    screen and go directly to Vista?

    Would appreciate the assistance!

    Hi,

    Click start, type MSCONFIG and hit <enter>. Click 'continue' when prompted.
    Go to the boot tab, click on the listing for the former operating system and
    then delete. Confirm and apply/ok. Once it is the only OS option, the system
    should no longer pause on the boot selection menu.
