Solved How to get rid of a boot menu with only one choice

Specs: Windows 7, IntelQuadcore 2.8 GHz
Had two Win7 OSs on two HDDs after resetting an earlier image. This resulted in a boot menu with two choices. Removed one HDD and removed one of the boot choices with EasyBCD. Booting, however, still starts up the boot menu, but now with only the one choice. Would hitting the "Write MBR" button in EasyBCD's "BCD Deployment" window make this now useless boot menu disappear ? Don't want to end up with an unbootable machine.

Thanks for an answer. W.

Don't know the actual product EasyBCD...

but there help section clearly shows how to in effect bypass it at boot up;so as to boot straight into whichever OS is installed/set as default (if more than one):

There is wee check box in the Time Out options area... to bypass/skip the boot-menu.

And this is their complete(?) help section too:

And this wee discussion is along the lines of removing Easy BCD - although I can't vouch for its efficacy...

And this one a relatively simple "how to uninstall EasyBCD" - again can't vouch for it..

Overall I'd leave it as at present apart from setting time out to zero, or skipping the boot-menu... If ever you have cause to re-install/repair yourWindows OS then consider getting rid (uninstalling) of EasyBCD. In truth it likely wasn't necessary anyway; as Windows comes with its own built-in boot-loader/menu etc. which can be edited/tweaked etc. to suit.

Setting the time-out to zero should do it. The boot process will immediately go to the default option and as there is only one - bingo!
