Multi boot

By nhiep_nguyen ·
I have installed a multi boot on my computer.
There are three windows installed in three physically distinct drives.
I was able to edit the menu presented when booting so that there is clear indication about which boot is which.
Now I have deleted one windows installation and I would like to remove one item in the boot menu but don't find how to do it.
Could anyone tell me please?
Thank you

[boot loader]
? If only one OS will remain, TIMEOUT= is ignored.
? Confirm that the Default= line points to the correct Windows installation.
[operating systems]
? Delete (or edit) the XP/2K/NT line that's not correct.
? If removing Win9x/Me, delete the line [C:\="Microsoft Windows 9x"].

Method 1: Edit from Windows XP/2K
1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
-or- Use Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System
2. Click Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery > Settings >System Startup.
Click Edit. This opens the Boot.ini in Notepad ready for editing.
3. Always backup Boot.ini first. Go to Menu bar > File > Save As.
Name any safe folder, and save Boot.ini as Boot.inn (or a similar name).
Note: If you now edit Boot.INN, remember to Save it as Boot.INI.

Go to control panel-folder options-view- show hiden files and folders.
Close and have a look in your HDD.
If you find file name boot.ini ,edit it.
Find OS you want to delete, delete it and save file.
Close edit and reboot your computer.
Good luck
