Remove entry from boot menu?

#1
Hello,

This is my first post here. Maybe this is a silly question but I couldn't figure out to solve it by myself.
Until some time ago I had two HDs on my system, being Windows XP at a SATA and Windows 7 at an old IDE. Recently I upgraded my motherboard to a new model that doesn't support IDE so I just discarded the Windows 7 HD and sticked to XP.

The problem is that now every time I boot my computer it shows a boot menu with the options:

Windows 7
Earlier Windows version

I would like to remove it to not have to keep selecting the "Earlier Windows Version". I tried the boot.ini but I think that it is somewhere else because these entries aren't there.

Any clue?

Thanks!

You need to go to "msconfig" (type it on search bar in Start Menu as shown below):

And then delete the other boot option from there under "Boot" tab:

It won't work. As I mentioned before these entries aren't in the boot.ini. Look what I see with my msconfig:
