I am using windows operating system 7 on my notebook, but i wished to use MAC operating system. But when i tried to install that OS without formatting another drive other than Drive C, it didn't install but also this made my personal drive blank.

This action formatted my drive D and after that  whenever i start my windows it shows three options of operating system that choose which to start from. I am unable to delete those options from my windows.

windows boot manager console.

Hi Analmaq,

Here is the solution for your problem:

  1. Right Click on My computer and select properties.
  2. Go to Advanced System Settings.
  3. Click Advance Tab.
  4. Go to Startup and recovery and click settings.
  5. Click System Startup and then click Edit. Now you are modifying the Boot.ini file. 
  6. Copy the boot.ini file, before performing any deletion, a real good safety measure.
  7. Now delete the un-necessary operating system lines and save it.
  8. Reboot.

It will solve your problem.

Regards,

Stephney

Hello Anal,

Starting with Windows Vista and Windows 7, Windows no longer uses the boot. ini file for managing multiple boots. It now uses "BCD" or Boot configuration Data. Windows 7 has a built-in tool called BCDEDIT. If you want to know how to use it here's a guide that can help you:

If you quickly browse to the above link, you will see that BCDEDIT is very complicated to use. Therefore, I suggest the easier method – EasyBCD (http://neosmart.net/EasyBCD/). EasyBCD makes managing your boot loader easy.

Download it now and give it a try!

Here are some screenshots to convince you how easy it is to use:
