Can't remove Boot Select Menu

Sorry to post on old post, but i have a little problem:
I've installed Windows 7 successfully on mi Netbook with Method #2.
But when Windows start booting, apears the Boot Select Menu.

I can't disable that, i've used msconfig, EasyBCD, Win Installation Repair tool and other tools, and still apears. Anybody has an idea?
Sorry for my bad english

Hello Cocus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you mean the Windows Boot Manager where you select what OS you want to have startup at startup, then you can use the tutorial below to set the time to display this to 0 (or uncheck it) to not have it anymore.

Operating System to Start - Change Display List Time

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I've tryed both solutions, but it still appearing. If i change 0 to another value, still the same. This may be a bug of my ISO?

Thanks.

Yes. I've installed again to ensure.. but still the same... may be the files of the installation aren't the originals?

Are you dual booting with another OS? If so, check the same settings in it as well.

Nope, fresh format on the HDD

How long does it appear for? Don't know if you are doing this, but make sure you are unchecking the box, not just setting the time to 0.

It's unchecked. By the way, it's on 0 seconds. I't doesn't have a timer to auto select option, so it's like an eternal wait. This thing sound strange for me. I'm thinking that the kernel it's incorrect, it installed the installation kernal and not the Windows 7 kernel. (i'm thinking that because, before select the system, appears the loading screen and it's the same of Win Vista, not the Windows 7)

You said you used EasyBCD to attempt removal of the ghost listing, but did it even appear on the listings there?

I would also be bothered by why it appears after turning off in Easy, msnconfig>boot, and default timer settings. (BTW you can select that OS using up/down and Enter keys - don't need to wait out the timer)

At this point, I would put in my Windows 7 DVD and do a Repair Install from the desktop.
