Removing dual boot options

I moved to Windows 7 from Vista. I had dual boot to Ubuntu but ended up removing the OS and i still get the option to choose this when it is not installed. How do I get this option removed?

Try Start Menu > Msconfig
(Type in 'msconfig' in the search box, without the quotes)
Have a look in the boot area.
But this is a really sensitive part of the OS. Be very careful what you do there.

You can also use a free utility called "EasyBCD" to edit the choices and text.

Easiest of all is this:
[windows key]+[Pause/break] to bring up system panel,
then click Advanced system settings,
Advanced Tab,
Startup and Recovery "Settings" button.
From here you can remove OSs and so on.

Late to the party, but in addition to the above, this may be able to help.
