Dual Boot menu still present even tho im not dual booting

Hi,
So i was dual booting 2 windows 7 of my computer as one of them stuff up so i was transfering all my data over to the new windows 7.

I use partion wizard to delete the old windows 7 and extend the size of the new windows 7.

No every time i start my PC up i get presented with the dual boot screen.

I have checked msconfig, and it shows that there are no OS

After doing some research I have found to get it to show the Os in msconfig, I need to assign a drive letter to msconfig.
However once that's done and I remove the drive leader and restart pc it doesn't appear once again

Hi

The boot selection menu is stored on the BCD ( Boot Configuration Data ). You can install "EasyBCD" and then remove the old OS entry from the menu.

"EasyBCD Community Edition" download : https://neosmart.net/Download/Register/1

Thanks.
I managed to get rid of the dual menu went I gave the system reserve a letter. Is there a way so that it always shows my current default OS, because when I remove the letter from the drive,it dissapears from msconfig

last night I changed the partion to primary, and then I booted it up this morning and it seems to be showing fine in msconfig.

So no idea if it fixed for good or not
