Successful tri-boot with one small issue


Active Member

I have successfully added a Windows 7 partition to my existing XP/Vista drive.
My boot menu shows 4 entries however.

1. Vista (my default)
2. XP
3. Windows 7
4. Earlier Version of Windows

Number 4 happens to boot into XP, the original OS on this single drive laptop. What I'd like to do of course, is remove #4 and be left with the first three boot options.

Thank you, Scott

Hi Scott, welcome to NST
Download yourself a copy of EasyBCD.
Select "add/remove entries"
select the spurious entry and hit the delete button
then remember to hit the save button when you're happy that only the entries you want still remain.

How easy was that? :smile:
Thank you very much Terry, mission accomplished.
Over and out, Shirley this will be the easiest query of the day.
