Was running a partitioned drive with XP pro on one and Win 7 on the other. Wanted rid of Win 7, formatted and removed partition. Used fixboot to remove the choice of xp/Win 7 but in the process inadvertently added two extra choices using bootcfg /rebuild etc. I can see how to add choices, but not how to remove them! Help welcome...

Open the boot.ini file on the root of C. You'll see the entries for the boot options. Delete the ones that are not the Windows one.

Whilst trying to find how to edit boot.ini I discovered bootcfg /delete /ID # where # is the ID number of the unwanted entry. I'd been using the cmd prompt in XP setup and this was not listed under 'Help' Thanks for the push in the direction anyway!
