The Win 98 boot menu shows up during bootup without pressing F8 or Alt.

I have looked in all configuration files and cannot find where it is loading from.

Computer otherwise works normally.

cumbo, try to check these if you want to disable the bootmenu.

(1) at the normal desktop, start-run, type [msconfig] , OK.
At the general tab of system configuration utilities, click the [advanced] button.

Uncheck the box for:-
[ ] Enable Startup Menu.

Click Ok, exit

Restart the computer.


(2) Use notepad to open the C:\Msdos.sys, change value and save.

    If the value is BootMenu=1, BootMenu is enabled.
    If the value is BootMenu=0, BootMenu is disabled.

let me know if you have any queries.    pslh

Thank you. I had forgotten about the advanced button in Msconfig. I knew about Msdos.sys but, use that as a last resort.
