Boot Manager on startup---only 1 OS!!!

Ok. So when i installed Windows 7 i also had the evaluation copy of Windows 7 on another drive. Everytime i boot the computer it asked me which copy of windows i want to boot to. I erased that driver so i could get rid of that problem but its still there. Even if i try to boot into that drive it errors out and restarts. I want to boot my computer and it boot strait to my ONLY os.

So, How do i get rid of this annoying boot manage?

You have to fix the MBR and delete the other entry. E.g with EasyBCD.

Look in your Disk Management to make sure it is your remaining Windows 7 drive that is marked System Active - if not you need to recover the MBR into it by marking it active and running Startup Repair from DVD 3 times with reboots to write MBR to it.

If not, it is likely only a stray boot menu listing that can be removed in msconfig>Boot tab.

If none of these works, then use the link from Wolfgang above to install EasyBCD 2.0 and Remove any extra Windows 7 listing on Add/Remove tab.
