    About a year ago, I built a computer which I had set up to dual-boot Windows XP Pro and the release candidate of Windows 7. Since I seldom used Windows 7 on this system, I decided to keep it exclusively XP.

    I already deleted the Win7 partition from the hard drive, but the menu to choose which OS to use still appears whenever I boot this computer. How would I get rid of the boot menu now that the system only has XP?

    Use a 3rd party boot manager such as EasyBCD to fix your MBR.

    More than one possible solution.

    However, I tried EasyBCD, and that did the trick. Thanks, Ted.
