    Yes you can edit the boot.ini file. Just remove the selection entry of the OS from the boot.ini config file...

    since this boot.ini is a system file, unhide it first from going into folder options

    METHOD 1:

    First enable "Show hidden files/folders" and disable "Hide protected system files" options in Tools -> Folder Options.
    Now goto C:\ in my computer and remove the READ-ONLY attribute of "BOOT.INI" file.
    Now edit this file and set the timeout to 0.

    METHOD 2:

    Right-click on MY COMPUTER icon and select Properties.
    Goto Advanced tab and in Startup & Recovery section, click on Settings button. It'll open a new window, in which click on EDIT button, it'll open the same BOOT.INI file.
    Do same as I told in METHOD 1, set the Timeout to 0.


    Hope It'll help...
