I recently installed my W7 OS onto my SSD, when before I had the same copy on my HDD. After using the SSD as the main drive and formatting the HDD it still gives me the option to boot up from two W7 and is telling me that my copy of W7 is not genuine. I have only booted up from the first selection of the two which must be the SSD. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

The not genuine issue can be cleared up with a quick call to Microsoft's activation call center and explaining the situation.

The boot menu issue can be fixed by using msconfig. On the boot tab, you will be able to remove the superfluous entry.

The msconfig worked perfectly. Much more simple than I had thought and the not genuine issue seems to has worked itself out somehow. Thanks for helping a noob.
