Windows 7: Want to get rid of Boot Loader

14 Dec 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate

[QUOTE=jimbo45;440952]Hi there

Create as many partitions as you need on the Disk -- suggest you use say 40 GB for W7 and use the rest of the disk for DATA partitions.

Thanks for the suggestion but EasyBCD solved the problem. My machine now boots straight into Windows 7 (which is what I wanted).
