I know that I have asked this before but I cannot find the answer here.
How do I change the boot order. Not in BIOS but on the black screen that appears upon restart.

Thanks again

Hi carbonterry2. As 2 cents go, the only way to make boot order change is in BIOS. It loads first then your o/s, that is unless (yes a possible exception) you're not running a simple Windows computer, Mindblower!

When that machine boots it will come to a black screen giving the option to boot from the different OS's on the machine. In my case there are 3 OS's to choose from. That is the order that I want to change.

The easy way is to use EasyBCD 2.3 (http://neosmart.net/EasyBCD/) and use the edit button and check the OS you want to boot first. EasyBCD should only be installed in the OS you use the most. I always get the free version.
