Asus / M50vm

Specs: Windows XP
Intel Core Duo T9400, 4gb RAM 32 bit, Vista Ultimate, 320gb HD. Put on Ubuntu and Win 7 RC, Triple boot with no issues, now want to clean up. Reformatted HD to remove the old OS. Still boots with no probs, but shows non existant OS on booting. Can I clean up this Boot process without a total reImage. I have too much installed Software to make this pleasant. So the basis of this question is "how do I remove the options to boot from the startup process?" If Too difficult, I can live with Current process.

You should be able to remove the W7 RC in Vista by running msconfig, type it into the start search bar, the file will pop up click on it to run, select the boot tab, select the line with the RC in it and delete, save and exit.
If you have a problem that you can't remove it, download EasyBCD (free) install and run it to clean up your boot menu.

Thanks for that!!! Well that was easy enough.....The instance of Ubuntu still show! Isn't the MBR located somewhere that I can edit in text and remove the Ubuntu entry?
