Is the second OS on a separate partition? You may want to combine partitions after deleting the second OS to use the space on the computer(if the partition is too small for it to be used as a data partition).
And with a added Azero folder(explanation is below).
I have found that on some computers the below microsoft article does not really get rid of the second OS on the hard drive. What i do then is to put a folder i name "Azero"in the C drive. The reason i add the Azero folder to the windows system OS that you want to save is that you can tell in windows explorer which OS has the Azero folder in it and that is the OS you want to keep on the computer.You can then delete the other system off the drive. That gives you much more usable space on the hard drive. You may have to use safemode or even the command prompt to get rid of all the files.
Here's the Microsoft answer to your question.
If you have more questions, just ask away. The more you know the easier it is to get your system right.

Please do the following in the exact steps. Failure to do so could make the boot.ini damaged and cause unstable or unusable results with your system.:
Save a Backup Copy of Boot.ini
1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl and then click OK.
2. Click on the Advanced tab, and then click Settings
3. In the Startup and Recovery area at the bottom click Settings.
4. Under System Startup click Edit. This opens the Boot.ini file in Notepad ready for editing.
5. In Notepad, click File on the Menu bar, and then click Save As.
6. First in here change the location in the top white drop down box to Desktop. Then in the file name change to Boot.old and save as Text Document(*.txt) and save it to your Desktop and then click Save
Please copy and paste all the lines from your Boot.ini file in your next reply.
