msconfig Boot settings options unresponsive

I am trying to do I tweak to allow both of my Cores to Boot the computer, but in the msconfig for the Boot tab, I can't click ANYTHING, I can click exit, cancel, and help, but I can;t go into advanced settings under Boot or check any boxes in the Boot tab. Why is this and how can I fix it? [Attached is an image of my msconfig screen depicting the details of this]

I have tried: Startup Repair, sfc/ scannow, disk defrag, and chkdsk

That tweak you are trying to do is pointless. So there is really no point in doing it. Windows is already using your CPU to the maximum it can. There is no setting in Windows that will allow you to go beyond the capabilities of the hardware.

It being broken is a blessing I say. *nods* You never actually need it. All of those settings in there are for testing and developing.

This thread fixed my problem. I gave the OS partition a letter, (A: System) in my case, and then hid the drive using the registry tweak here.

You should still leave those options alone. They do not do what you think they do.
