in your root dir is a file called boot.ini (typically hidden) which controls what is displayed and how long

so check c:boot.ini

or use Start --> Run --> msconfig

to edit this file

my boot.ini look like this

[boot loader]



timeout=30



default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS



[operating systems]



multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer

please note that the parameters can be different on your sysem but in general it should look like this

While checking c:boot.ini file, I found the following entry:

[boot loader]

timeout=30

default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS

[operating systems]

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

C:="Microsoft Windows"

Now can i remove this entry in this boot loader file. Will it resolve the issue then?

Thanks and nice to hear your advise.

is your windows installed in

c:windows

or

c:Microsoft Windows

?

if c:windows

use msconfig to select and remove the last line (if possible)
