    Hi,
    I recently installed windows 7 home premium on my new SSD drive. I previously had windows 7 installed on a 2GB HHD drive (same win dvd, same serial)
    I booted with windows dvd, and formatted the old c: (which had windows on it). The HHD drive had 2 partitions and i kept the other one ,which only contained one folder with aprox 10 GB of random files, but nothing windows related).


    Windows is now up and running from my SSD disc, but in the boot sequence two(!) windows 7 installations are shown, and I'm asked to choose which one i wanna boot with. The top alternative works as intended, but the other one tells me to make a windows repair with the windows dvd.
    I do NOT want to repair this (non existing) instance of windows. I want it removed! How do I make it dissapear?

    regards,
    Oscar

    you can try this,

    run

    msconfig

    select boot tab

    and see if there is more than one option in the list, i no when u have windows (recovered) it will always appear in here,have a loook

    u can always press delete on the one you dont want, but be careful
