Default removing boot options

hi all,

i did a vista install from my computer onto my friend's HD, because it would lock up during installation on his actual system. it was done while my copy of vista was running, through the CD autoplay interface.

that worked fine, but now that his HD is removed i have the leftover boot options and setup files. it seems vista has no boot.ini, and the GUI boot interface won't let you actually delete boot options. anyone know how to remove them?

thanks in advance.

Browse and download/install VistaBootPro or EasyBcd.
They are both extremely easy programs to work with and are concerned with the Vista Boot manager.
With either, you can remove unwanted entries or even rename them.
