Deleting one operatinvg system.

by cobrachilde / October 21, 2009 12:19 AM PDT

Hey everyone,
I have a computer with 2 hard-drives in. Initally, I had Windows Vista Ultimate installed on one, and Windows 7 RC on the other.

Now that W7 is offically released, I would like to get rid of both the OS and install it on one of the hard-drives. I tried to format the Vista hard-drive but it wouldn't let me and so I formatted the har-drive on which I had the W7 RC on. Even after this, when I boot up the computer it still gives me the W7 option...however as the hard-drive was formatted if seleceted, it provides an error message.

Is there any way I can get rid of the 'choose OS' screen, so that when I install W7 on the comp, it automatically starts up without me having to manually press enter?

If so, I would very much appreciate it if you could help me.
