I have vista installed on my pc (by the way to all naysayersi like it). I installed windows 7, but then had to reformat my hard drive, and install it again.
Now when i boot, the BIOS posts, and in the Boot Menu i have Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 7.
One of them just blue screens the computer because it no longer exists.
Does anyone know how to fix this? So i only have one Windows 7 and the Vista to choose from?
Any help, as always, is greatly appreciated.

My computer is:
AMD: Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2886 MHz
Mobo: Gigabyte M57SLI-S4 v.2
RAM: 4GB Mushkin DDR2 PC2-6400
OS: Vista 64bit SP2
VC: EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB

From there, I would boot into Vista and run msconfig

On the boot tab, rename one of the Win 7 installations. Doesn't matter what you call it, just so you can identify one from the other. Hell, name one 'Kenny' and the other "Mr Bill"


On restart, try the win 7 installs. If Mr Bill works and Kenny doesn't? Then Go back into the boot tab in msconfig and kill kenny.
