If you're talking about my hard drives I already posted a screenshot.

That isn't your "Disk Management". That is your "Computer".

Your System Reserved Partition is on Disk 0 and your C: drive is on Disk 1. You need to get your System Reserved on the same partition as C:. This will tell you how.
Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD

Yes, there is only one Win 7 on your computer. but you need to get the System Reserved Partition on the same disk as you C: partition. If you don't follow, look at the Disk Management you posted. The System Reserved is on Disk 0 and the C: is on Disk 1. They need to be on the same disk. Use the tutorial I posted and it will tell you what to do to correct the situation.

No, that is it. == You can do a new clean install, but that is a lot of work.

You started this thread with that you wanted to get rid of there being two Windows 7 at startup. If you can live with that, then you could leave it as be. I can't help but think that if you don't fix it, somewhere along the way you will have a problem trying to boot. Save your pennies and get that program so that you can fix your PC right.
