Boot loader shows Double Win7 Home Premium

For some reason when start my laptop up I get 3 OS choices and 2 of them are the same thing. So how do I delete one of the Windows 7 Home Premium choices (and easy BCD only shows one Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and one Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit)

Dunno how this managed to slip past the support group. Anyways, type "msconfig" in your start menu. Go to Boot tab and delete the entries you desire.

Try setting 32 bit as default - then delete one of the 64 bit entries

Tried that and the delete button was still greyed out. I'll boot into Windows 7 ultimate and try that.
