How do I get rid of my selection for windows

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I used to have 2 partitions on my hdd one for windows 7 and one for vista but I deleted the windows vista partition and now I only have windows 7 and one partition but when i boot up my computer the screen still comes up asking me which os to select but it only shows windows 7. How do I get rid of this screen without reformatting and boot directly into windows 7?

Need to edit the boot.ini file I believe.

Check this out for more info, that should get you started.

you need a manager such as EasyBCD to edit the boot manager. Vista and 7 don't use a boot.ini file, only pre vista uses it.

I would use easyBCD, it always worked for me and is very easy to use.

start-control panel-system- select advanced system settings on the left side. go to the advanced tab. go to start up and recovery. un-check the box that says "time to display lost of operating systems" that should do it.

to all the other posters... You what? this stuff is built into windows. Just open msconfig and its under the advanced settings in there somewhere. There's a tick box to show or hide the OS selection screen. I can't check it right now, as i'm at work and these computers are locked down tight.

Edit : Mysticksinner beat me to it.
