Windows 7: Seems I installed Win 7 ultimate, twice?

Seems I installed Win 7 ultimate, twice?

Hello everyone. Your help please,

I finally did what I wanted to do for a long time: Did a fresh installation of Win 7 in the same desktop.

However, one detail is bugging me. The best thing here is show you some Pics of the issue.

At boot up, Windows gives me two choices: Window 7 and Windows 7 again. Sort of makes sense, because when I did the "first" installation, something happened and a "-" just hung up on a black screen for ever (one hour at least). So I just finally "reset" the system and did a second installation. The later one went just fine and that is the one I am using.

However I am wondering what is actually going on. Do I have two installations or what?
Assuming it is nothing more than a minor issue, is it possible to remove it so that I can speed up the boot up?

TIA

EB

While you are booted into Window 7, you can use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to delete the Windows 7 that is not listed as the "Default OS" to remove the second entry in your Windows Boot Manager screen.
