Hi, I have setup my system to dual boot from windows 7 and xp. But I want to set XP as my default OS. How can I do that? Thanks

Open the cmd prompt in Windows 7 with Administrator privileges.
At the command prompt type this.
Code:
bcdedit /default {ntldr}

Or for a GUI way in Windows 7: right click Computer - Properties - Advanced system settings - Startup and Recovery Settings... - you can choose the Default operating system and also how many seconds of delay before the default is booted.

Or you can choose the default OS on the Boot tab of msconfig (I think in either system).
