I am thinking about buying a n150. But I don’t want it to have a boot menu as I think it is a security risk. I am not talking about the CMOS setup menu. Many computers have a second menu (often activated by pressing Esc on the boot screen) called boot menu which allows a user to choose from which device the computer should be booted. This allows it to override the settings in the setup menu.
So my question is: does the n150 have such a boot menu?
If you buy a second hand unit
– on initial boot up the N150 running Windows will normally boot straight into Windows… The user who set up the computer usually gives the (only) user Admin rights – else they cannot install programs.
By going to Start up > Control Panel > Users
You can change the user name and set up for yourself a Password (still with Admin rights) and if you expect the computer (netbook) to be used by a ‘Guest’ you can enable that – leaving it password-less – with restricted access
When the computer starts there will be a choice – Your user name and Guest
Guest can go straight into Windows after clicking Guest but they cannot install or uninstall anything (!)
You, enter your password under Your user name and boot into Windows with Full user rights
If you buy a Brand new unit…
Part of the Windows set up asks you to give yourself a user name and set up a password…
You can also set up a guest account as above… if you want one.
IF you decide to dual boot… THEN you will find a Boot manager menu…
Hope this is the info that you needed…
