Failed repair

I tried to repair my OS cause i had numerous problem with my notebook . I tried to repair it a few times and it keeps failing. Now every time windows boots i get two options one is setup and the other is windows 7. How do i get rid of the setup ? It seems as if windows is trying run the repair even though i canceled it already.

boot menu

  1. By default Vista/Windows 7 open command prompt in user mode, so we need to change the permission. To do so, just execute this command: Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > (right-click & "Run as administrator") Command prompt
  2. bcdedit /set {legacy} Description "Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition SP3"
    (Changes the text description of the "Legacy" OS line in the boot menu. The quotation marks must be included in the command)
  3. bcdedit /default {legacy}
    ( Sets the legacy (Windows XP) OS as {default} boot item)
  4. Running bcdedit /?
    (shows all commands one is able to use)

If you wanted to repair your OS why did you stop? have the problems been fixed? You can run the system file checker (from command prompt run sfc /scannow) to verify the system files. I will not hose your OS
