    Click Start > All Programs > Admin Tools > Computer Management and click Disk Management. The drive that is labelled as ‘System’ is where the boot files are stored for both your Windows operating systems. It is where the initial booting starts from by showing a list of operating systems.

    So, if partition 1 has the boot files you will be able to remove the boot reference to partition 2.
