How do I delete XP Setup from boot option with Windows 7?

#1
Well basically I was trying to reinstall XP but it failed and now the default boot option is XP setup but it always crashes. I installed Windows 7 and it work fine. Now I would just like to get rid of the XP Setup boot option. I've tried using the EasyBCD program but when I hit Tools>Edit Legacy Entries I get an error saying:

"Boot.ini is located on the hidden boot partition and cannot be loaded for user editing by EasyBCD.
Please either assign a drive letter to the hidden boot partition or use the Windows XP dual-boot-configuration feature instead."

If I can get some help with this nightmare I would greatly appreciate it! Help me get rid of this annoying nightmare please. :rage:

P.S. The XP setup option is nowhere to be found neither through EasyBCD nor bcdedit in the CMD.

If you mean that your W7 boot menu contains an unwanted XP entry, you get rid of it using EasyBCD "edit boot menu"
The Tools > legacy option is for changing the contents of boot.ini
