This is kind of a odd request but I figured I would ask before just poking around and messing something up! :)

I use Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7. I have 80 gigs of my HD dedicated to ubuntu the rest of my 500 gig HD to Windows .

Heres my issue when the initial boot screen comes up asking me what OS I want to use. Theres like 4 versions of Ubuntu and then the Windows selection.

I was wondering if theres a easy way to go in and clean it up so only the most recent Kernel update is showing, it's recovery mode option, and then Windows?

You can remove previous kernel revisions using SW Centre (or synaptic or apt-get...) and this will also remove the corresponding entries from your boot menu. Be careful to keep your current kernel, though ;-)

Donwload Tweak Ubuntu. There's an option called "Clean Kernel". Select the old kernel versions and click on "clean" Simple as that!!
