    Howdy,

    One you could Edit your BOOT.INI file

    Or try this Press the Windows Logo key and Pause Break keys together and in the new window click on the Advanced button

    Then Under Startup & Recovery click Settings

    Under System Startup you will see Default O/S click on the drop down and change which one starts up first.

    Do you have a choice of the 2 when windows starts up?
