Hi and welcome to LQ. This is not urgent to us. We are volunteers. In the future please use more meaningful titles.

It looks like BOSS uses grub legacy as a bootloader. Please edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and add/change the timeout line, eg:

Code:
timeout 10
This will wait 10 seconds before it starts loading the default choice. It will give you time to choose the OS you want.

Please read the LQ Rules, and the posts about how to post smart questions.

And have you tried selecting Windows 7 from the boot screen? Hitting a key?
