Modifying Windows 7 Boot Loader

In Windows 7, if you ever have two operating systems and now you have removed one of them, then in Windows 7 Boot Loader, one of removed operating system is still there. You're forced to make the selection advance. This is so annoying. Now these are little steps to remove it:
To begin, open the Start menu, select All Programs, and then choose Accessories. Right-click on Command Prompt and select Run As Administrator. Once in the command window, type bcdedit.This will return the current running configuration of your boot loader, showing any and all items that can boot on this system.
Select one of Windows Boot Loader that has no identifier {current}, it has rows of numbers and letters in identifier line.

Then type Bcdedit /delete {boot loader identifier} , braces included. That's all.
Warning: Don't you try to delete Windows Boot Manager ! you may render your computer unbootable. You may only delete Windows Boot Loader.
