    My computer crashed several months ago. I have 2 hard drives so i reinstalled windows 7 on my D drive. I also reverted back to an earlier version of the OS which corrected the problem on the C drive. How can i remove the OS from the D drive now that I don't need it. Whenever I boot up it asked me which OS I want to use. I actually reformatted the D drive but it is still asking me which OS i want to use. How do I correct this problem so it only sees the OS on the C drive. I couldnt find anything in the Bios to correct it. I have a Dell Inspiron 570.

    click on the windows version you want at start up

    when it loads
    click the start (orb)
    in the search box type
    msconfig
    hit the enter button
    click on the boot tab
    highlight the windows option you dont want
    click delete
    apply and ok
    restart pc, the pc will only boot the option you left

    any files will have to be deleted BUT you wont have to select the option
