The first black screen is to slow

Hello,

I dont know what this black screen is called , but its the one, where  u can choose which operating system u want to use .

for example if u installed Windows 7 and Windows Vista and u open ur computer  it gives u a choice  to choose which windows u wana use .

Basically i installed Windows 7 twice and  now  i have to choose between windows 7 and windows 7 the first one is the working one,the second one not. but it takes 28 seconds to be choosen automatically .

I was wondering if i can either decrease these 28 seconds to 1 second for example or just remove the second Windows 7 to make it run with the first one automatically .

Thank you

Use EasyBCD to remove the invalid entry in the "Boot Manager" screen. Once you remove it you will no longer see the Black "Boot Manager" screen and there will be no waiting.
