    I have Windows 7 and XP set up in a dual boot situation.
    Is there a way to change the order of choices on the boot menu?
    The default is Windows 7. I would like to have " an earlier version of Windows" be the default.

    You need to enter the BIOS and change the boot order

    That doesn't work. The options are HDD, CD drive and USB drive. It is booting from the hard drive and these options show up after booting from the hard drive.

    I can only find a way to do this from Win 7. R-Click on My Computer and choose Properties. Then click Advanced System Settings. Then in the Startup And Recovery window click the Settings button.
