another dual boot

  Gingerland 16:20 29 May 2009

Hello chaps

I hope you can help me on this one. I have an XP system with two hard drives. When Vista was RC1, I downloaded it and dual booted my system, very good. When the RC1 ran out, i decided to try Ubuntu instead of Vista. So, I installed it as a XP/Ubuntu dual boot. For some reason, my system retained the vista dual boot menu at start up as well as the Ubuntu grub. Not a problem as I just set the vista one to XP and a short delay time.
Now I want to get rid of Ubuntu and dual boot with Windows 7 RC. My question is, is it possible to get rid of the other dual boot menus and only have the one for XP/Windows 7, or will it install yet another dual boot screen.
I would appreciate your help on this.

Many thanks
