Are you sure you are correctly booting into hardy?
In your system monitor, under the first tab it will show your current system and kernel.

If you want to remove old kernels there are two methods, one is permanent and one is not.
For non permanent you could edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst and delete the 7.04 boot option. (Don't forget to backup your menu.lst before making changes to it!)
The permanent route is to open synaptic, search for the old kernel and choose to uninstall/remove

to delete an entry in grub, remove the part with the entry we want to delete


sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

If you want, back it up first just in case you mess something up.
