Windows 7: Computer boot time

31 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 Bit
Computer boot time


A while ago i installed ubuntu besides windows 7.
I then decided to remove ubuntu so I just deleted it's partition.

I apparently never should I have done that as I wasn't able to boot back into windows.
I tried a few repairs and then it seemed to work fine.

Now however, whenever I try to boot up my computer it takes about 30-60 seconds before I see windows loading. It hangs at my motherboard logo. Apart from that windows works fine.

Does anyone know what to do to get rid of the long waiting?

Try this: from the start menu, type "msconfig.exe".

Then go to the panel called "boot". There you can change the delay before selecting the default operation system.
