I do not like dual boot menu's, but I do have XP and Vista on 1 machine.
When I start my PC it automatically starts Vista, and when I want XP I pres F8 to select de HD on which I have XP. I like this why of being able to select XP instead of Vista.
But I was wondering if it is possible to create a floppy disk that, when booted from, makes the PC boot XP. So I simply can enter the floppy disk turn the PC on and wake away, and it will automatically boot XP instead of Vista without have to change the boot order manually or pay attention (to pres F8 and then wait a second to select the HD).
It does not matter how it works, if it has to change the boot order and then reboot that is okay, because I than can make 2 floppy disks one to change to XP and one to change back.
Thanking you in advance.
