your going to have to reinstall windows 7
put the disc in and boot directly from the disc
when it starts hit install now and then and this is the big step
you need to hit customize and when you get there you will see your discs and partitions
delete them all and install to the new partition and then all will be well

Hello bordaciokas Can you post a screenshot of the Disk Management tool for a look at your drive there. First off before deleting anything if you have more then one partition your main concern would be seeing the XP primary wiped for a clean install of 7 not effecting any storage partition you may also have on the drive(s).

As Night Hawks says, we need to see a screenshot of your Disk Management drive map and listings before we can advise you exactly how to remove that Dual Boot menu.

Use the Snipping Tool in Start Menu, attach file using paper clip in Reply box.
