Windows 7: boot manager issue

04 Mar 2010   #1

boot manager issue


I've just recently done a clean install of Windows 7 Professional. I was using windows 7 RC version prior to the install. Now when I start my computer it brings up the boot manager I guess because it detects two operation systems. The RC and professional versions. Right? It asks me to select which operation system I want to use. This is not very important, but it's annoying. I've already cleaned out and re-formatted the hard drive partition that had windows RC on it. But for some reason, the boot manager still asks me to select an operation system. Out of curiosity I rebooted and selected the second Windows 7 option to see what would happen. It immediately said that it couldn't load that operating system because the files are missing. My professional version still works fine. However, I don't want to be prompted with the boot manager every time I turn on or restart the computer. How can I make the computer realize that there is really only one operation system on my computer? Am I making sense?

Any ideas are appreciated, thanks.

You can use msconfig.exe and go to the boot tab to delete the unwanted entry.

If msconfig fails, install EasyBCD and remove ghost entry from boot menu using Add/Remove tab.
