I installed a new Windows 7 Enterprise on my pc and for some reason it is remembering my ramdisk boot option when booting. I am doing this process several times and it is very inconsistant and doesn't happen all of the time. I dont see a boot.ini file to remove this option. Is there a different way to remove the ramdisk option from startup for windows 7.

There is no boot.ini for either Windows Vista or 7; a new boot method is employed, which you can modify through the use of a built-in tool called BCDedit.  This page should be of help:

boot.ini does not exist in Win 7. You need to use a tool called bcdedit (part of Windows). Check out this page for reference:

To view the entries, you need to type "bcdedit /enum".

"bcdedit /delete" should remove an entry once you determine the one you want to get rid of.
