I am using a compaq b1200. And it really sucks when you boot up and see those choices consuming a lot of time in the boot process. How do I get rid of it to achieve faster boot up. In windows, specifically windows 7.

Go into the BIOS and change the boot device list. Restrict it to just the hard drive, or maybe the hard drive and the CD-ROM device. This should stop the BIOS waiting on those boot devices on startup.
