Hello,

Try reading through this tutorial for instructions on how to use BCDEDIT to change the boot time.

Hope this helps,

Open an Elevated Command Prompt and type the following command bcdedit /timeout 10 Note that you can include whatever number you want, and that will be the delay in seconds. I suggest 10 because that gives you sufficient time to invoke the alternative OS if you want.

Here is another thought:

Go to msconfig, under the Boot tab, make sure the box "Make all settings permanent" is unchecked.
