i have a hp mini which original came with xp professional, but it got corrupted. i tried doing a repair using my xp cd, but that did not work just keep getting an error. so to save time i when ahead and did a new installation windows 7 ultimate, and its working fine. the only problem is that the old Os (xp professional) is still showing up in the windows boot manager menu and is only defaulting to the xp.
in fact three choices are showing up in the windows boot manager, which are 1)Earlier Version of Windows 2)Windows 7 3)Microsoft Windows Xp Professional Setup..
what can i do so that only windows 7 is showing up in the boot manager? the other two are not working..
