Everytime you would start the PC You would get a Edit boot options screen
With
Edit Windows boot options for:<OS> Now it says Windows 7 Because i just installed it
path:\windows\system32\winload.exe
Partion 1
Hard Disk 68000000
[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
I hit enter and it boots fine, how in the hell do i remove this... tried a boot loader program with no luck.........

Is this a dual-boot setup?

Open the disk manager and report where the system partition is.

Run msconfig and go to the Boot tab. Do you see the same, or a similar, message there?

Try this:
I think on C drive there is a ini file for booting. Could be hidden. boot.ini

Example (old backup from a computer):
Code:
[boot loader]
timeout=15
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

Run EasyBCD. By default it comes on under the "Overview" mode.
Select Detailed (Debug Mode).

Does it show "optionsedit Yes" under "Winodws Boot Loader"?


Edit:
If yes, that is your problem.
Open a Command Prompt as Administrator and type:
bcdedit /set optionsedit no
That is bcdedit space slash set space optionsedit space no

After you run that, every time you boot, the computer should boot directly to Windows without giving you a prompt anymore.

I am glad that it is fixed.

When you get a chance, please do me a favor and run EasyBCD again and see if you still cannot see the optionsedit entry. Thanks
