Remove a boot option

How can I remove the option windows setup roll back . it is from an error i made installing win 10. I was trying to install to a virtual disk under vmware and stopped as i was not sure if i was installing to the real system. I think that is what happened something distracted me.

I have changed so my win 7 is the first default option but want to get rid of the other rollback option

This also created a $Windows.~BT folder in my C:\ but i deleted it by booting from paragon boot cd

Apologies if this posted twice, I got a notice it was a duplicate

Here you go. Delete or remove Windows Rollback option from the boot menu If I were you, I would leave it. It is used to uninstall Win 10. You never know when you might need it.

You could got to System Configuration (msconfig) and delete it from the list (leaving you Windows 7 only). I've removed unwanted OS startups that way in the past and it worked.

Others may have move sophisticated ways of doing it.
