View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do I remove a useless 'Ubuntu' option from my boot screen?

February 15th, 2011, 11:03 PM
On my HP laptop, I had Windows 7 Home Premium dual booting with Ubuntu 10.04 (Wubi). Then I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional, and then reinstalled Ubuntu as dual boot (also via Wubi, but 10.10 this time), but unfortunately I didn't uninstall the old Wubi before I did all the new installs. Now my Windows 7 Pro and Ubuntu 10.10 are working just fine, but I have a useless 3rd option when I boot up for the 'Ubuntu' that I don't have anymore.
How do I get rid of that option on the boot-up list? It's rather annoying.

Use easybcd to edit the boot menu, or microsoft's command line tool: bcdedit.exe

You get EasyBCD from the NeoSmart Technology forums. It's a free download. Be sure to get the latest version.

EasyBCD worked great! Thanks a lot. It's quite the little handy program. :)
