Changing Names ofseveral earlier OSs

Postby garyg » Fri Jun 20, 2008 2:32 pm


I have a server running 3 OSs.
I loaded Windows Server 2003, XP, and Vista.

All are operational. I would like to change the name on the boot loading screen from "Earlier version of Windows" to the OS names.
I see there is a spot to add an OS, what I am not understanding is what do I name the "earlier versions" part.
