Good day,

My PC's on dual boot mode. I have 2 OS (Windows 7 and Linux-Ubuntu). The problem is 4 options are shown on the boot menu. 

  • Windows 7
  • Windows 7
  • Ubuntu

How do I remove the excess? 

Thank you in advance.

Hello

Follow these steps:

1. Information about boot menu is stored in the boot.ini file so you need to make it writable. Open cmd and enter this command:

attrib -r boot.ini

2. Now go to Start -> Run and enter this command: notepad c:boot.ini

3. As you can on pictures, in this example we have two Windows options, you must know on which partition you "good" windows is, so delete "bad" windows partitions and change the default value of partitions to the "good" one.

Boot Loader Partition Windows Boot Notepad

But first backup your files before doing this. 

Cheers.
