    Is it possible to reduce the time limit which shows in the initial screen of the dual boot list? How to do it from Windows system?

    I have Windows XP and Windows 7 dual boot in my PC and whenever I start the computer a default wait of 30 seconds goes on for the boot selection but most of the time I use to go for Windows 7 so I need the time to be reduced to 10 seconds or so for the selection, is that possible to do it? How to do it from my Windows system?
