Formatted the partition that held Windows 7, and was still getting the dual boot screen when I turned on the pc. I did a system restore but it didn’t help, was told (not here) to downloaded EasyBcd v. 1.7.2 to get rid of that problem… didn’t quite work, now when I boot up I have the option to choose Older Windows Installation (no other choices) after choosing that, I get the option to choose XP Pro or recovery. Is there a way to get rid of that first ‘screen’?
Before using EasyBcd I thought I’d just re-install Windows 7, only to find I can no longer boot from my DVD drive. Set up the boot order in BIOS, but still doesn’t boot the Win 7 DVD, the drive does seem to be looking for media when booting. I don’t have any other bootable DVDs, but and I can still play (movie) DVDs on it.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
