Windows 7: How do i configure the dual boot menu?

How do i configure the dual boot menu?

In the previous O/Ss, you were able to configure the boot menu options in dual boot scenario's by editing the 'boot.ini' this however, is not the case in Windows 7 and past 2000 O/s. Any ideas?

This is because i have an operating systen showing up in my menu that does not exist anymore and i dont want to wipe the O/S (Windows 7) to remove it as i have other O/S that are working fine. Any help would be appreciated!

If you can't remove the ghost listing in msconfig>Boot then use EasyBCD Edit OS Menu tab.
