why? i assume it has to do with security or else you would not be in this area. just make sure that the administrator account has a password and you should be ok.

i know that wasn't your question. that is why i asked why. i want to better understand the problem so that i can help you. have you weight the consequences of removing that menu even if it is possible? how will you get into safe mode if the computer has problems?

i think i may have found a way. it is very iffy though. if you replace Ntldr and Ntdetect.com with the same files from Windows NT 4.0 it might work. all of the searching i did came up with nothing else. It may not be possible. maybe you should see if you can find a way to make the computer ignore the keyboard until a certain time in the boot up process.

if you want to do some more research on your own the technical name for the menu you are trying to disable is "Windows Advanced Options Menu"

some of the stuff i am just guessing. i thought it was worth a try. sounds life if it doesn't work that it isn't to hard to fix just backup those 2 files.
