I have Win 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I've been having a couple issues with it, but recently after a couple failed startups (freezing just before Windows logo animation) and trying to repair it, NOW when I turn on my computer the boot manager comes up every time and it's annoying. How can I stop this from happening?

A little possibly relevant info - I used to have Win 7 RC installed on a different HDD, but then bought Windows 7 Home premium and installed it on a different HDD (and changed the boot order in the BIOS to boot from the new installation's HDD) It was working great for a while, but then started having startup issues (named above) and now this.

Thanks for any help!

You could open a Command form and navigate to %systemroot%\windows\system32 and run bcdedit.exe then edit the RC out - it's nearing sunset anyway.

It's the method by which you edit the boot process in Vista and W7.

goto starrt|run
type msconfig<enter>
goto boot tab and find the unused entry and delete it.

Either method Pat and Saga mentioned will be sufficient to pull the RC out of the boot manager.

With that said, however, should you require additional assistance and guidance, Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams.
