Can I now safely delete this entry ?

Hi Guys I originally had Win 7 on my C Drive and XP Pro on my D drive and made an entry in Easy BCD so I could dual boot. I now however have retired XP and deleted it from my D drive.

I now have only the one entry in Easy BCD ( See Pictures ) can I safely delete this entry as I don't want to be asked at boot up which Operating System I want to use as I am now only using Win 7?

No, that is the entry for Windows 7. Delete that and your system won't boot.

There is no entry for Windows XP so you should not have to select which to use at boot time. Are you still seeing that?

Greg there is no XP Ghost in there, I have sorted it now anyway, I just set it to 1 second and it boots instantly into Win 7
