7 & XP & Recovery Console: Removing XP [not dual boot]
I've installed Windows 7 Build 7057 on a partition where I previously had Windows XP. I wanted this installation to wipe out the XP, but instead it created a Windows.old folder. I've deleted that folder, but now when the system starts up a black screen with three options shows up:
1. Previous Windows
2. Windows 7
3. Windows Recovery Console
This Recovery Console was installed when I had the XP, I have no idea why it's still there.
I would like to remove any traces of XP and this console so that the system can boot 7 right away.
Also, a tiny thing: for like 2 seconds a black screen with all drives attached shows up, I'd like to remove that one, too.
Could you tell me how to do it?
If there was a similar question before, please let me know where the answer is. I apologize if I made a double thread.
