Windows 7: Help installing Win 7 to new SSd

Help installing Win 7 to new SSd

Hello all, need a little help, here is my situation:

Custom built pc with a 1tb hdd with Win 7 installed on a partition. Recently purchased Samsung 840 120gb SSD. I installed Win 7 OEM system builder disc onto the new SSD . Went into bios(ASUS M5A97) and set it to
boot from the SSD and evrything works perfect. Now when I restart the PC I get the dual boot screen asking me which Win7 to boot into. I can choose either and both work fine but I really want to boot from the SSD only. How do I accomplish this? Eventually, after I have moved over some essential programs over to the SSD with the OS,I want to want to wipe that drive clean and use it for storage. Once I activate the vers on WIN7
on the new SSd and everything works, then i will wipe the old HDD. For right now I want to delete the dual boot screen and just boot from the SSD. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Just set the ssd as your default and set the timer to your liking, 5 seconds is sufficient.

Type msconfig in the search, then go to the boot tab.

If both OS`s don`t show up there, you can install and use EasyBCD.

We'll need to see a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Forums so if the old Win7 is booting the new one we can help you move the boot files if necessary and then delete the old Win7 partition or wipe its HD to get it cleanest for repartitioning.
