I have 2 versions of Windows 7 on my boot menu, but only one works. How do I remove one?

You'll use BCDEdit to edit the boot menu settings. A good tutorial is here.

You can make the change in windows, no need to drag another piece of software into the mix. –  Scott Jun 7 '09 at 14:44
    
@Scott, BCDEdit is part of Windows. –  Kevin Jul 1 '09 at 17:51

You can either use EasyBCD or the built-in BCDEdit, as Kevin mentioned.

works with XP, start>run>msconfig>boot.ini>check all boot paths

For XP it's:

Right click my computer --> properties --> advanced --> startup and recovery --> settings

I'm pretty sure it's the same for Win7

I've had to do this myself.

Run msconfig, select the boot tab, and remove the unwanted entry.

A better option is EasyBCD, like gharper mentions below, which has an easy to use GUI and more advanced functionality.

However, there is a new beta version available that has improved Windows 7 support over the latest release.
