Extra Windows 7 Boot option makes pc take more time to boot up.

So yeah, my simple issue is thaht i installed windows 7 on a hard drive, which i later replaced with a Samsung 840 SSD, which also was bootable. So now ive got 2 windows 7 options to boot from, and the only bad thing there is is that it takes 30 extra seconds to boot up, which isnt that much of an issue, but thats mainly why i bought an ssd, to get a quick bootup time, and i only use the FIRST (highlited) option of windows 7....

You'll want to eventually get rid of the old Win7 install after you're sure you have everything out of it. The correct way to do this is to delete its partition in the SSD's Disk mgmt. However I'd go a step further and move the data off the HD to wipe it with Diskpart Clean Command which clears the boot sector so it isn't a bootable HD any longer

Windows Boot Manager in BIOS boots only at Boot option 1
I need to put the Windows OS, that means Windows Boot Manager in BIOS at Boot option 2, but in this case it does not boot. I need to put at boot position 1 PXE boot and if that fails boot from Boot option 2 (Windows). How could I do that? My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-Z97P-D3. Thank you!
