How to Remove a Boot Entry on Windows 7

Are you trying to find how to remove boot entry from Windows 7? Read this article for step by step instructions.

Typically, you do not need to remove entries from the BCD registry file. Instead, you should simply remove entries from the Windows Boot Manager menu. To remove an entry from the menu, first run bcdedit /enum and note the boot entry's identifier. Then run the following command, substituting the identifier.

bcdedit /displayorder {GUID} /remove

For example, to remove the entry to load the previous version of Windows from the boot menu, you would run this command.
bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /remove

To permanently remove an entry from the BCD registry, run the following command.
bcdedit /delete {GUID} /remove

You should permanently remove an entry only if you have removed the operating system files from the computer.
