2 x Win7 boots. Need Boot 2 up first

Hi I have two Win7 boot drives - A boot C drive and more recently another drive holding Q boot which enables the openong of graphics programs only untainted by anything else. The default boot is Q but I want to change that to the C. Upon firing up the computer, the DOS screen asks - win7 or win7...if I dont manually move down to win7 (the second one C) it will open to the top one - the graphics (Q) based one. How do I change that (I suppose in DOs but Im no guru), to the general C boot...thx
