Entry in boot manager that i cant get rid of


New Member
Due to a diagnostic tool i used to repair a dodgy installation, i now have the bootmanager coming up when i start up my computer.

I has two entries:
"Windows Vista"
"Try this the 9th time" - (This was part of the diagnostic tool)

I have stopped it going into the bootmanager by setting its timeout to 0 but i want to put xp back on it again and dual boot which means ill need bootmanager screen but then there will be 3 entries.

I have opened EasyBCD and there is only one entry in the bootloader (Vista)

I don't know how to remove the other one. Any thoughts?
Welcome to NST, dasforsyth.
Please post the contents of the "Detailed Mode" in the View Settings section of EasyBCD, so we can take a look at the actual BCD entries.

Get the identifier for the bad entry with bcdedit from the command prompt:


Copy the identifier and paste it in for {xxx} in the following command:

bcdedit /delete {xxx}
