How to delete boot option from OS selection menu

Sometime you might be used multiple OS on your machine and sometime instead of uninstalling them some of you just Format the drive of additional OS and it no doubt remove all the OS component from the system but a thing left behind is the Boot loader that you face at the start-up of the computer. When you start-up the PC you may face those for irritating options. I too had faced it and got almost 6 option there including Windows 7, Windows 8 Dev preview, Ubuntu, Linux mint, Linux mint and Linux Mint. It was really so irritating at that time, but i did some digging in my Windows 7 and found the solution and in this post i am going to tell you the same.

I am going to tell you two different method.
First method is you can delete the entry from the Boot manager and
Second one is to Hide and start the windows or any OS directly without showing the options to select the boot.
