Solved Computer thinks that there are still two operating systems

Here is what I did: Originally I had Windows 7 installed on my C: Drive. I then split the drive into two and installed Windows 8 onto the second half. I then formatted the Windows 7 part, changed it into unallocated space and merged it with the Windows 8 partition.

The only problem is that my computer will ask me whether to boot from Windows 8 or 7. If I boot W7 then it goes black and my PC restarts. I have the F: Drive which is Windows 8 and the G: Drive which is "System Reserved" with a file called "bootmgr~2" in it.

What can I do to fix this situation.


PS Another problem I have is that I have 1mb of unallocated space before the "System Reserved" partition and then Windows 8, like this: [1mb Unallocated Space] [100mb System Reserved] [450gb Windows 8]. How can I remove this space as I cannot merge it with the "System Reserved".

Thanks for the help :)

I did have two other 1mb spaces and I merged them with the main partition. I think that they're just a bi-product of MiniTool Partition Wizard.
