Push Your WINDOWS Boot Menu to Startup

I was thinking that why Boot Menu doesnot apperas automaticallly i.e Windows does not display the boot menu normally unless a key is pressed during bootup (F8 for Windows 95 or CTRL for 98/Me). The boot menu allows you to selectively boot Windows in different modes, including Safe Mode and Command Prompt Mode.

So For doing that (boot menu will show automatically) follow this tutorial:-

Change the attributes for MSDOS.SYS so it is not 'Read Only', MSDOS.SYS is found in the root
directory of your C:\ drive. Open the file using Notepad or another text editor (not Microsoft
Word or any word processor).
Change the value of 'BootMenu=' to 'BootMenu=1' for enabled or 'BootMenu=0' for disabled.
If the boot menu is enabled you can control how long it waits before continuing to boot with the
'BootMenuDelay=' option. Set 'BootMenuDelay=' to the amount of time to wait in seconds. i.e.
'BootMenuDelay=5' would wait 5 seconds before continuing to load Windows.
