well if the title confused you... when i boot my computer, the list of OSs to choose from goes like this... OLDER VERSION OF WINDOWS WINDOWS 7 WINDOWS 7 WINODWS 7 UBUNTU those other 2 WINDOWS 7 options are there cuz i messed up the installation once and the other is from build 7000. Similarly, if i choose OLDER VERSION OF WINDOWS this is what the menu looks like... WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL because i messed something up on my 40 gig hard drive whenever i installed XP. How can i get rid of these extra unneeded options? also, can i edit how many seconds it is until it automatically chooses an option? and one more question... is there an alternative to this whole boot screen like a Linux boot screen? anything i can install that will change the way it looks/boots?
