Acer Laptop, help required

I repaired windows vista with a built in acer erecovery programme. Everything works fine now but when boting it prompts me to choose between windows vista or acer erecovery. Anyone know how to remove this selection and make it load vista automatically. Cheers guys

cheers guys. looks quite complicated. Am i likely to muck anything up?

vista doesn't have a boot.ini file like xp does. here's what u need to do to change what comes up in your boot menu:

1. Open System by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel,
clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.

2. In the left pane, click Advanced system settings. If you
are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the
password or provide confirmation.

3. Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Startup and
Recovery, click Settings.

4. Under System startup, choose a default operating system and
the amount of time to display the list of operating systems, and then click
OK.

You should be able to delete the erecovery section from here!
