First screen at boot up

Specs: Windows XP
It started with Nero and trying to get it out of my cpu. Being tired, I recovered the cpu and this is what's going on.
At start up there are two selections: xp home edition, and xp start up. After the recovery the cpu want to start up using a boot disc. I don't have a boot disc and it's never done this before. If I catch it quick enough, I can hit the up arrow and then enter for it to boot up correctly.
So how do I change this so that it starts up the old way. where the Xp Home Edition is already highlighted and continues to start up?

Be quick & get Windows started!
Right click 'My Computer'.
Click 'Advanced' tab.
Click 'Settings' in the Startup and Recovery section.
At the top of this window you will see Default Operating System. Click on the drop down and select the option you want, by hi-lighting it.
Click OK then Apply and restart. If you have selected the correct one Windows will start. If it does, you can then go to the same window again and this time uncheck the box under the default operating system (Time to display operating systems). This will stop the choice being displayed.
