Hi, so first and foremost I want to say that I LOVE THIS FORUM. I had the black screen blinking cursor problem today and advice from these forums helped me fix it, so thanks for that! :D

However, now my issue is, I need to know how to get rid of all these extra OS options, I only have one OS...The other ones were put in there when I was trying to fix it today. Could you give me some advice on how to get it back down to one OS? It's probably something simple, but I don't wanna go rooting around somewhere I'm not familiar with without the proper direction. Thanks in advance.

Where exactly do I go to remove them?

Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery.

Under System Startup, click Edit.

Be careful when you edit.
