You can try this:
1. Go to your control panel
2. Click System
3. Go to the tab that says "Advanced"
4. Click "Startup and Recovery settings"
5. Uncheck the box that says "Time to display list of operating systems"
That should work... I uncheck all those boxes on that page and put "none" in the "Write debugging and information" selection. That makes BSOD's stay up and not dissapear when they happen so that you can maybe tell what effed up. Just thought I'd put that little bit in there.
It's not a race, unless it is a race.
