    Windows 8 Boot Menu Problem.


    Not sure where to post this in the forms. If this is the wrong place to submit this thread I sincerely apologize.

    I had been dual booting Windows 7 and Windows 8 using hard drive partition. I had one for Windows 7 and the other for Windows 8. I have since switched over to windows 8 formatted the Windows 7 partition and merged it with the Windows 8 Partition making it my primary and only operation system and partition; however when I turn on my PC it still leads to the OS Select/Boot Menu to select either Windows 8 or Windows 7.

    So my question is, how do I get rid of the Windows 7 option so it will just boot up on Windows 8. I already have it set to auto start Windows 8 after 5 seconds but I would like to remove the option and the need to go to the menu from the start itself. All help is appreciated.
