Windows 7: Dell MediaDirect boots into Win7, doesn't stay in MediaDirect.

Dell MediaDirect boots into Win7, doesn't stay in MediaDirect.

My Dell XPS 1330 has a MediaDirect partition and has Windows 7-64 installed.
.
Everything works fine with Windows, but not MediaDirect:

When I press only the MediaDirect button, it briefly (2 seconds) shows me the MediaDirect screen, but then goes into the Windows 7 boot, as though I had pressed the Power-On button that boots my Win OS.
.
How can I get it to STAY in MediaDirect?
.

Hadn't worried about this much, since I didn't really use MediaDirect but lately I'm wishing I COULD use only the MediaDirect, without the full OS (which takes over 4 minutes to boot up.)
.

Any suggestions?
