Thanks!
Should also mention that on msconfig and boot menu, the only one listed is the Windows 7 OS system and is default.
That's the way it is supposed to work.
The Win 7 'Boot Manager' screen is good for you:
Note that one of the options, besides booting Win 7 is to hit 'Tab' and select the 'Memory test'.
If and when you run into difficulties with the boot process not 'going forward',
you might want to check your on-board ram, assuming that you've been lucky enough to get that far.
Others may tell you how to eliminate the screen from popping up, but
I would strongly advise against that.
Instead, change the default 'wait' time to maybe 3 or 2 seconds, depending upon how intolerable the wait period is to you.
The wait period is easily changed by running 'bcdedit' from the command line.
If you're uncomfortable with that, I believe there's a GUI program that others might suggest... bcdedit or something like that, which has to be "installed", I understand.
