Booting Offers 2 Windows 7 Start-Ups

I cloned my C drive, and removed that C drive using the new, cloned drive as the C drive. But when I boot-up, a black screen gives me 2 choices as to which windows 7 to boot with. how do I get rid of that? there is only 1 drive connected with windows 7 on it. the 1 choice is the correct 1. when I choose the other, it says windows 7 can't load.
