Boot Problem

It's not really a problem, just a minor inconvenience and I figured someone would know what to do. whenever I boot up the computer it comes to a screen that says Load:

Windows 7
Windows 7


When I load the top one its fine. When I load the bottom one it says insert windows 7 installation disk to repair windows. I'm guessing that this is a result of reinstalling windows 7 on top of the one that needed to be repaired, which is what I did. I was wondering how to get rid of the bottom one so I don't have to go to this screen everytime.

It does and you can use BCDedit to fix the loader. BCD is built into win 7 and there is a tutorial on how to use in our tutorial section.

Let us know if you need help with it
