All good answers but it may be more simple then all that. Press the Windows key and the pause/break key at the same time, on the left side of the screen click on Advanced System Settings, click on the Settings button under the startup and recovery options, and take the check mark out of "time to display list of operating systems".
There is also a drop down menu option that you can select which operating system you want it to default to.

What is the boot list showing when you boot windows? Do you have more than one operating system installed?

You will want to utilize BCDEdit to modify your boot menu. Here is a link with command line options:

With more info, more exact answers can be provided. Thanks.

Thanks for any input.

You can also change the boot.ini file from the System Configuration utility. In the Start menu, search for msconfig

On the Boot tab, it will list the operating systems (OS) installed, allow you to switch among the list the Default OS to load, and even decrease the timer to choose among the list from 30 seconds to 3 if you want.

If you want to remove the other OS listed, or if you're only listed with one but still getting prompted to choose it, let us know.

Google search for EasyBCD. Once installed go to the "Edit Boot Menu" In section of "Timeout Options" select "Skip the boot menu" Click on "Save Setting" button. On your next boot it will boot to your default os without showing the boot menu. If you want to change the default os that boots, EasyBCD can handle that too.

Note: I have no way of knowing how to get the startup options screen to appear that normally appears on tapping f8 on bootup to access startup option like "safe mode" for example. Someone else might have incite on how to access the startup options when the "boot menu" is disabled. This is the only reason that I never had the skip boot menu enabled on my system.
