Booit Boot Manger automatic OS selection when Booted

Sat Mar 03, 2012 8:23 am

Does Booit Boot Manager when booted support selection of an OS after a timed delay? Or is there another way to have the same outcome happen? If so please let me know how to do it. I would like to have my machine start and directly go to a default OS after a few second if I don't hit a key. Thanks.

I don't know how I missed this in the manual. Automatic selection of an OS is supported under the program settings option "IT mode". It's not timed as I thought it might be.

You can do that by opening the Settings dialog on the BIBM desktop, and
enterering the time delay you want in the "Timeout" field at the top of
that dialog box. A value of 0 means no automatic boot.

To set a specific default OS to boot, you need to go into the Boot Edit
dialog for that boot tiem, and check the "Default" checkbox on the left.

If no boot item is specifically set as the default, it will boot the
last item booted.

Tom,

And a '10' equals 10 second delay.

And clear any password.

Correct?

Right, the non-zero values entered in that field stand for seconds (e.g.
10 seconds), and if there was a password on the default boot item, it
would prompt for it, so you'd have to clear it if you want it to boot
all the way by itself.
