Windows 7: Problem booting after removing 1 hard disk

Problem booting after removing 1 hard disk


I was having Win7 installed on 2 disks, when I was booting, I had to select between the 2 instances of win7, so far so good.

I removed one of the hard drive but I still have the selection at stratur and, lucky as I am, the "default" one is the missing hard drive so everytime my computer reboot, I receive and error message and I have to reboot and choose the second win7 in the list...

Is there a way to remove this selection and always boot on the remaining HD ?

Type msconfig in Start Search box. Right click on result to Run As Admin.

on Boot tab, highlight the unneeded OS to delete it.

If this fails, install EasyBCD (free Download at bottom of page - no name or email required)
On Edit OS Menu tab, select the unneeded Win7 entry to delete it.
