    I installed Windows 7 on an optiplex 330. The install was fine, but now whenever I boot the computer the Windows Boot Manager opens and asks me to choose an operating system. This is not a dual-boot configuration, I want it to boot to Windows 7 all the time. How can I get the computer to boot to Windows 7 without pausing at the boot manager?

    Howdy,

    What did it have on there before and what choices does the boot manager have?

    If your other option is your old operating system then could mean you installed the new one without deleting the old one.

    You can try this click start>>Run>>type msconfig>>click OK. then Boot tab and you can delete your old one and click OK....but this will not delete the files on the hard drive

    I went to the system configuration Boot tab and the only operating system is Windows 7 (C:\Windows) : Current OS; Default OS

    The old operating system was XP
