    Option to dual boot when a 2nd operating system is not present


    Hey guys, first time here. I recently upgraded my windows 7 to windows 10. I have had everything activate properly. I then decided to do a fresh install of windows 10. I loaded boot media on my pc and everything went fine. Now with the fresh install of windows 10, at boot up, I get the option to choose windows 10 or windows 7. How to I change this so it ALWAYS defaults and boots windows 10? Considering I wiped my hard drive clean windows 7 shouldn't even be an option.

    You can use the System Configuration tool like in previous versions of Windows, here's a tutorial for Windows 8, process should be similar:

    Thank you very much


    I am pretty positive that worked I need to restart to double check, in the middle of a large download so I am going to wait until it is done and then reboot and will mark solved after.

    Oh I noticed after I used that solve that it was detecting windows 7 on my secondary hard drive, this drive was wiped ages and ages ago, I don't know why the os is detecting a windows 7 installation there.
