Is there a way to disable the recover mode on Windows 7, so that no matter what error occurs it will always try and boot normally?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Are you referring to the screen that pops up when say, you powercycle the computer? – Zian Choy Oct 7 '10 at 3:15

  1. Right-click My Computer, select properties.
  2. Click "Advanced system settings"
  3. Under Startup and Recovery click the "Settings..." button. There is an option for "Time to display recovery options when needed"

You can try unchecking this (if already checked) or you can try checking it and setting the time to zero.

In Windows XP you could edit the boot.ini, in Windows 7 it's different.
