Windows 7 Booting
When booting up Windows 7 it shows 2 other operating systems on the boot menu including Windows XP and another Windows 7. Only the first option for Windows 7 does anything. How can I remove these options and why are they there?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To edit the boot loader information in Windows 7 (and vista) you need to run Boot Configuration Data Editor (BCDEdit).

You need to launch a command prompt as administrator and then run BCDEDIT.exe. it will then list the identifiers for the different boot options.

Make a note of the identifiers that you want to delete and run <b>Bcdedit /delete <i>{boot loader identifier}</i></b>

On next boot up they should of disappeared.
