Windows 7: Two boot managers

Windows 7
Two boot managers


First of all, thanks for this amazing forum that really can help newbies like me.

So, now, the problem I have.

I had Windows Vista installed in my computer. I have changed, formating the disk with the Windows 7 installation disk. Now, when the computer boots, the former Vista boot manager shows up for seconds and the computer boots again but, now, with the Windows 7 boot manager and then all is booting right. Why is this thing happening and how I can to remove this Vista boot manager?

If anyone knows the way to solve this issue, please, let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Right click on your start menu and in Properties "show run box"

Type "msconfig" into run box

on boot tab, look for a Vista entry and delete it. Do not delete the Win7 entry!

Reboot the computer and the Vista boot menu entry should not appear.
