TrueCrypt, post restore, remove Boot Record?

I just restored a disk that had Windows 7 and was an encrypted volume using TrueCrypt. Now, upon boot I get a message that asks me for the password - I can just hit ESC and it skips and boots right into Windows. How do I remove the part of the MBR that makes the TrueCrypt request for password?

Thanks!

Hi.

Did this before.
Boot your win7 Setup DVD but instead of installing, hit Shift F10 which takes you to the command prompt. There, fire the command
bootrec /fixmbr
Done. Reboot.

Awesome. What also worked for me was pressing ESC at boot, then when inside windows I opened TrueCrypt and "Permanently Decrypt System Partition" and it removed the boot screen. Thanks
