    Recovery menu


    Hi!

    I wanted to try out Windows 8 so I created a partition for it and installed it on there. The dual boot worked fine and I could get into Windows 7 and 8 no problem.

    But I wanted to uninstall Windows 8 cause I never used it and it took up disk space.
    I read that you simply were able to remove the partition it were on so I did that.
    The next time I started the computer I got a screen that said "Recovery Your PC needs to be repaired."
    I got 3 different options and one of them was to use a different OS (Windows 7). When I chose that (F9) I got into Windows 7 and it worked fine, still does. I'm just wondering if theres any way to get rid of that screen. Its not really convenient to press F9 everytime I start my computer.

    Thanks,
    BolleN
