Windows 7: How do I bypass os select screen that appears during boot?

Having Windows.old means you didn't even boot the installer to correctly reinstall Win7. Run Disk Cleanup to clean it out.

I told you how to get rid of the Dual Boot menu.

What I would do is look over the steps for getting and keeping a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to see how close you came. If it varied much and you see better choices you could have made then I'd do it over, this time deleting all partitions during install.

Otherwise if you'd want to delete and reclaim the space from the first two partitions we can help you do that.

But if you'd prefer to keep what you have then it looks okay with the boot files on C and nothing awry. To remove the Dual Boot menu type msconfig in Start Search box, on Boot tab delete the extra listing. If this doesn't work then install EasyBCD (click Download - no Name or Email required) to do the same on the Edit OS Menu tab.
Thanks Greg. The EasyBCD enabled bypassing the boot screen, which is exactly what I wanted!
