Windows 7: Reverting or Undoing a Startup System Repair

Reverting or Undoing a Startup System Repair

Sorry if I have posted this in the wrong section.

I was having problems with MBR corruption a couple of weeks ago, I thought it was because of my dual booting with Vista and Win 7, I was getting tired of the Vista side so I decided to nuke everything and start with a clean and fresh Win 7 Ultimate 64bit install.

I was done in about an hour but the updates took forever, ok, fine, all is well right?... wrong!

Sporadic Freezes, lockups and what have you so I am guessing the drive is pretty much done with so I thought I would clone the OS and start fresh with a new hdd. Now, before I was able to do this, I had one last lock up, had to force restart and when it posted, it told me to hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and that's when I new the MBR was busted again.

Inserted my Win 7 DVD and went to Startup Repair, it immediately told me I had an error and it was going to repair but now I have 2 options... 1 for Win 7 and 1 for Vista as well WTH??

I am going ahead with the Acronis clone anyways but I wanted to know if there is a way I can get rid of the other Vista Option and if I should be worried of this repair in any way, shape or form?

If I was to install EasyBCD, would I be able to get rid of the Vista Option with no ill outcomes afterwards?

Any help would be greatly appreciated... sorry for the long rant, age is a PITA
