Windows 7: Help needed

dual boot XP Home & Win 7 RC
Help needed

Hi All,
I've just joined this forum and wondered if anybody here could help.
I had a triple boot with XP home Vista Premium 32 bit and Win7 64 bit RC.

All was well until the drive which Vista was on suddenly begain to die, Win 7 did a disk repair and isolated the corrupt files. Because the system kept doing check disk whether starting XP or Win 7, I decided to format the Vista drive and delete all the partitions on the dodgy drive.

I finally did this and it's now a happy dual boot. On the OS boot menu Vista is still there, when my preordered Win 7 64 bit comes I will still be keeping my XP for things that I use which at present don't work in Win 7.

I will be just doing a clean custom install of win 7 again .

Does anybody here know of the utillity which you can use to get rid of the Vista wording. I know it doesn't spoil the dual boot I just don't like the wording there. I know there's one but have forgot what it's called.

I thought there might be an option to delete unwanted entries, where you
change the boot order of the OS.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks Sandy.
