Hi, yesterday i decided to try windows 7 on my computer. And because i don't know if 7 would be compatible with my hardware i installed it on a new partition and kept the old windows xp partition. Then, as i saw that win7 doesn't work satisfactorily on my pc i remove it. The problem is that the dual boot stays although i formatted the win7 partition. My old windows xp boots, but i don't want to see this dual boot option every time i start my computer. What should i do?

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Follow this steps

start, run, write msconfig and hit enter, go to the boot tab, and in this tab you can see your dual boot, just remove the Win 7 boot and keep the XP boot.

That won't work... installing Windows 7 also installed it's bootmanager. You'll need a program like EasyBCD to remove the extra boot entry. What are your computer's specs? I'd like to know why Windows 7 didn't run as nicely as expected.
