    Win 8 shows dual menu, even though I deleted Win 7 partit.


    I installed Windows 8 onto another partition while still using 7 show that I could dual boot until I was ready for a complete migration. Once I moved all my data to the eight partition, I deleted the seven partition and expanded the eight partition using EaseUS Partition Master. I restarted after doing so, but ever since I get the Windows 8 dual boot menu that gives me an option to boot to seven even though the partition is gone. Is there any way to prevent this from occurring every time I start-up without re-imaging my machine again?

    Welcome to EightForums.

    Take a look at Option Three in this tutorial:
    Startup Options - Choose a Default OS to Run at Startup in Windows 8
    but use delete to delete Windows 7.

    8 was already selected as the default and current, so I deleted the Win 7 option and it booted directly to 8! Thank you much!
