Default How do I load certain OS/harddrive on startup automatically?

Hello everyone,
I was wondering how you/if you can automatically load a specific HD/OS if you have two hard drivers, each with their own OS. I always use the same one and I am sick of having to push enter at start up. Is there anyway I can configure my computer to automatically load my F drive, instead of my C??
Thanks.

Change your boot.ini file to put your preferred operating system first and remove the delay.

How do I go about removing the delay? I have it first but I don't know how to remove the delay. Is it the timeout? Cause I can only put that at 3 seconds minimum.

yes, it is. If it's three seconds, it only takes three more seconds to boot up if it's unattended.

When the computer is booting up go into the BIOS. When in there you need to change the hard drive which the OS is on to the first boot able device.
