I have a 60gb SSD and a 1TB HDD. I installed windows on the HDD, then onto the SSD soon after.

There's now windows on both drives and every time I start my computer, It shows me this (but both options say "windows 7"):

I've learned that the top Windows 7 is the one on my SSD.

Now there's no need to have windows on my HDD. How do I uninstall it? Thanks in advance!

Boot into the Windows 7 that's on your SSD.
Now go into Disk Management and re-format the HDD partition that contains the other (unwanted) Windows 7:
Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management
Right-click the HDD partition and choose "Format".
Wait for the format to complete.

Now still in Windows, click Start > Run.
Type msconfig & press <Enter>.
Under the "Boot" tab, highlight the now redundant line and click "Delete", then click 'OK'

Restart and the dual-boot menu should have gone.
