System Configuration-Boot Tab

Good day, please help. Please kindly note I am not an expert with computers, so the simplest solutions
would be the best.
When I run msconfig, on the System Configuration, on the "Boot tab" there is no OS shown in the window,
and I cannot check any of the information shown in this tab
I do not know how to insert the OS in the window so I can change any of the info.
Help please.
My OS Windows 7 Pro.
