That command should stop the boot menu showing up at all.

BCD is your "Boot (something beginning with C -- probably Configuration) Data"; all kinds of things about what you (and the machine) (and MS) want to happen when you click the switch to start your machine.

bcdedit is a command-line interface to the data.

Try running:
bcdedit /enum

That lists all the bcd entries (in the cmd window).

Look for the "Windows Boot Manager" section, and check that it has the entry "displaybootmenu No"

If it doesn't, run the command again (elevated), to put it there.

If it does, look in the Windows Boot Loader section for a bootmenupolicy item (I don't think it should be there in Win 7, but they might have added it without telling me).

If you have that entry, you can just delete it:
Bcdedit /deletevalue {current} bootmenupolicy

Don't worry; it's easy to put back, with:
Bcdedit /set {current} bootmenupolicy // + whatever the value was -- I only recall ever seeing "Standard"

If that doesn't work (or if there isn't a bootmenupolicy item), the only thing I can think of is to set the time-out of the boot menu to zero seconds:
bcdedit /timeout 0

Although I'd probably go for one second, just to remind me that it's there.


[edit] Ha! It was JSOP who mentioned Weven, but it stuck in my head. The bootmenupolicy item is certainly there in winio.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
