After making an error installing windows, I now have two entries in the Windows 7 boot loader, one of which is incorrect.

How can I remove it? I've seen some entries recommending EasyBCD, but can't it be done easily without 3rd party software?

The easiest way to remove an entry in the Windows 7 Boot Configuration is to use msconfig.

To launch msconfig:

  1. Click Start
  2. In the Search text box, type msconfig
  3. Launch msconfig by selecting it from the search results above the search text box.

After msconfig is launched:

  1. Go to the Boot tab
  2. Slect the boot entry you want to delete.
  3. Click the Delete button and then click OK.

Works on Windows 10 as well. – UGS Aug 26 '15 at 4:21
