Not a big deal m8 , thanks for your help..

and thanks to all other's help..
Here's something else that I've just thought of.

Start MSCONFIG as I explained in an earlier post, the under the BOOT tab, change the timeout to 1 second. It may not remove that menu, but at least it won't stay up for very long.

Try it, and let me know how it goes?

Lots of folks use Download EasyBCD 2.0.2 - NeoSmart Technologies to correct bootloader issues.

But possibly easier is this solution by our friend SIW2: Cannot disable Win7 boot manager - post #15 if that does not come through.

Hello IcedLR,

Check using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to make sure that you have the Time to Display the List of Operating Systems at Boot box unchecked.

Operating System to Start - Change Display List Time

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Many thanks ,

Before i have seen the last post, i tried Tveblen's "But possibly easier is this solution by our friend SIW2: https://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...manager-2.html - post #15 if that does not come through." solution. that was just a cmd entry : "bcdedit /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu no" hope it is not harmful but worked perfectly..

But i also unchecked the waiting time as described on the tutorial.. it looks like a safer solution but i am happy now as i have got rid of that screen..

Thanks..

The way I see it, there is nothing wrong with the OS itself (confirmed by the OP stating that his system runs well after start-up).

The screen that you see is the OS choice screen of the boot loader. I see that screen every time I boot my machine. But then I am dual-booting, so I need this screen to choose the OS. It seems that your boot loader was set to show this screen anyways, even though you only have 1 OS. If you Google for it, you can find lots of suggestions on how to repair the MBR (master boot record) in Windows. However, since I haven't used any of these myself, I will refrain from recommending any.

So, at his point, I do not have a solution for this problem, I do hope someone will come up with a good explanation on how to edit such boot loader settings. To add my own interest in the issue, I have an older computer where I played with various Linux distros alongside the old trusted Win2K. Eventually, I decided that Linux is not for me, did not see any point of having it at home and uninstalled all of them. However, I still don't know how to uninstall GRUB - the boot loader that Linux forced on my PC without asking my permission to replace the Windows MBR. I read numerous suggestions on how to get rid of GRUB and get MBR back, but nothing helped really. This issue is not related to the OP's but hopefully someone will explain things about the MBR and I will learn as well.
