Try easybcd..

Download EasyBCD 2.1 - NeoSmart Technologies

It allows you to remove an entry, rename an entry etc etc.. Very easy to use. Make sure u delete the correct entry.

if EasyBCD is not compatible then you could try BCDEdit command in Windows 7

Just start a CMD with Admin
1. Type
bcdedit.exe
it should display something like this

then review and find the duplicate and its resumeobject id . for example if i want to delete windows vista here then my resumeobject id would be {a77450a3-92be-11dd-ac5c-991ff432a142}

then in the cmd prompt type

bcdedit /delete {a77450a3-92be-11dd-ac5c-991ff432a142} /cleanup

this will remove the entry from BCD store and list in the boot menu

Hi,

Thanks for your quick reply.

I typed the same in CMD.
Then, I got a message "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. Access is denied"
This is my laptop and I think I have Admin Prevliage. How I can check the previlage?
I have attached the snapshot of the message along with this.

Thank you,

Ibrahim
