  1. It means someone reinstalled Windows and chose to keep the previous copy. You can change the default by going into the control panel, choosing system, then startup. From there you can change the default and even reduce the menu time to zero seconds so that it boots faster.
  2. I did but it only shows one OS.. now im worried

    No problem, you will just need to edit the boot.ini file directly using these instructions from Microsoft.
