    I recently partioned my hdd to accomodate windows 7, to test it out to see if it was any good. I`ve decide to get rid of 7 and reclaim the partition space used. Managed to do that okay but when i restart my pc i still get a choice of vista or 7 even though 7 is no longer installed.
    How do i get rid of the 7 option at reboot?

    I believe that you go to MSCONFIG, select BOOT and highlight and delete the option to boot into Windows7. I did that some months back and I believe that is correct. You can also change the boot order there.
    Perhaps someone can confirm this?

    Go to Advanced System Settings in Control Panel, Then open Advanced tab and click on Startup and Recovery->Settings... Change the default OS to Vista and set the time to display OS list to 0s. Hope it helps.
