2 Windows 7 versions in boot

Hi. I re-installed Windows 7 in my laptop. The problem is when I boot, there are 2 OS that come up. Is it safe to delete the second OS (see screenshot) which says "Windows 7 Home Premium (c:\windows.old/windows)"?

If you're sure you don't need any data etc from the old Win7 install then go ahead and delete it.

Hello Jon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like your previous old installation was added to the boot menu somehow, but it will be safe to delete.
