    Help with bypassing advanced startup

    Hi! This may be a slightly retarded question but I used advanced startup options to gain access to my BIOS in order to disable the onboard ethernet adapter.

    Since, my computer starts up with advanced startup options every time.
    In other words, i get to a menu asking me if i want to start in:

    *safe mode
    *disable early detection of.....

    *start windows normally

    I would like to not have to select to start windows normally every time, but to have this by default.

    Appreciative of any help.
