Hi,

If you install Ubuntu inside Windows, you need to select every time which OS you want to start. You need to install full installation in order to skip this. If you install Ubuntu completely, then you can't keep Vista alongside. There is a option if you just don't want to select OS from boot option. Go to run command in windows. Write "msconfig" press "Enter". Then go to "Boot" from tab menu. Then select OS Ubuntu first. Then reduce timeout time to 1 second.  Then computer will put Ubuntu OS in first position & it will reduce selecting time. Ubuntu will automatically run without asking you. Hope your problem will be solved

I guess you already have a dual-boot system that has Microsoft Windows and Linux in it and you are tired that every time your computer starts it keeps on asking which operating system to start. This is actually not a problem because the time to start the default operating system can be changed or adjusted to make it a little shorter but not too short because you will not be able to boot on the other operating system.

To make Linux the default operating system, boot your computer using Microsoft Windows. After that, right-click My Computer then select Properties. Select Advanced tab. Under “Startup and Recovery” section, click Settings. In “Time to display list of operating systems”, change the time to maybe 5 seconds. Do this also in “Time to display recovery options when needed” so they have the same time.

In “Default operating system”, select Linux and then click OK. See image.
