    I see your point, but this is still an assumption based on how it's supposed to work. I'd still prefer to work with the results of the bcdedit command, and then fix the problem with bcdedit.

    The biggest problem will be when using BCDEDIT,if the OP needs to do a Start up Repair.
    Start up will not work or the Windows 7 dual boot will come back, as there should only be one System Resereved Partition.

    Thanks again for any advice.

    Yes, just delete the win 7 entry in msconfig.

I would really like to remove this option.

    I have gone through the options to select a default operating system to log in to but even after I select windows 8 and save the settings it still presents me with this choice to log in to windows 8 or 7 (recovered).

    Could anyone help me in disabling this or possibly removing the old windows 7 altogether?

    Thanks for any advice!

    windows 8

    Thank you for all the responses. Just wanted to update. I physically removed the 111.79 gb HDD (Windows 7 Drive) as this was previously an older primary drive I had been using. After a reboot the issue with multiple windows log in still occurred. I ended up deleting the Windows 7 Recovered from the msconfig and voila! problem solved. My computer boots straight to my home screen.

    Thank you again for all the helpful responses. You've made me not regret my choice to purchase windows 8 Much appreciated for all the assistance.
