I have a computer whose hard disk I recently formatted. As soon as I implement a .wim image in the computer using the WindowsPE disc with imagex utility, two entries are shown in the mbr menu: one for the previously installed system and another for the new one.

How can I edit this menu so that only the actual system appears?

Use BCDEdit from an elevated Command Prompt. Next, check the identifier of the other OS between {}. Once you identify the ID of the other operating system, type BCDEDIT /delete {long-id} and press Enter.
