View Full Version : Win2k boot up menu, changing order



05-03-2001, 10:20 PM
I have win2k installed on one drive, and winme on the other. The boot up menu on computer start up seems to be from win2k, with loading windows 2000 as the first option or windows me as the second. How can I change the order of the items on the win2k boot up menu so that the windows me option is the default, and is first?

Hi Tim,

You'll have to edit the boot.ini found in your c:\

Copy the line that has the ='Windows ME' and paste it over the line default=

E.G.
[boot loader]
timeout=0
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT <- ## change this line##
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT='Windows 2000'
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT='Windows ME'

Save and reboot
