My windows 7 computer used to have two hard drives.  I removed the secondary hard drive.  Now when i reboot my computer i receive an error message during boot that states a hard drive is missing and to hit F1 to continue.  When i hit F1 the system loads and windows works just fine.

I have no intentions of re-adding a second hard drive to computer.  Is there a way to disable the error message that i receive during boot?
