    how do i get rid of this stupid screen on startup? after years of reinstalling... it gets cluttered. I figured it was on the C:\ but for this install i wiped out my C:\ in hopes this would go away.. nope... this stupid screen is still here. It's annoying having to press enter on startup... and even more annoying waiting the 30 seconds. help please!

    c:\boot.ini I think is the more typical location. And you have to have "show hidden files" turned on.

    Right click on my comptuer, go to properties, advanced, startup and recovery and click the edit button. Take out the ones you don't need or just make the default one the one you need and uncheck the box that says time to display operating systems.
