    Avoid choosing between two windows installed on boot


    I installed 2 windows 10 on two different disks and at the start of the computer I always get the screen of choice that I brought to just 5 seconds in duration.Is it possible to delete this screen / choice and go directly to the current operating system?If yes ... how can I possibly get back the screen of choice between the two starts?

    Thank

    :)

    Installation media boots to command prompt

    I've just booted from known working install media to see exactly what it does when booting. The sequence of events is...

    1. Windows logo on a black screen
    2. circling dots appear beneath the logo
    3. light blue 'Please wait' screen with circling dots
    4. a command prompt window (very briefly)
    5. the initial Setup page appears

    Do you see steps 1-3? If so, it appears you have stopped at step 4, suggesting that something on the disc cannot be read.

    Does the disc boot properly in another machine? If so, try cleaning the laptop's drive lens then try booting from the disc again.

    If not, make new install media with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, either as a bootable USB, on an ISO that you can burn to another disc. At Step 8 in Option One of this tutorial you can choose between making a USB or an ISO.

    Boot windows installation within a partition?

    Damnit, I knew thats what you wanted with your first post! I deleted my post because JMCSLOB confused me lol.


    Hm, if you Follow this guide (Replace words "flash driive" with 160GB hard drive) How to Create a Bootable Windows 7 or Vista USB Drive for both partitions and then to do a dummy install of windows 8 on the last part of the HDD it should give you the option to boot Windows 7/8 Installer or boot into windows 8.
    Edit: On step 4 you will want to make sure you size the partition correctly... or you can use the windows gui tool in control panel.


    Once you get that far you can just delete windows 8 from the boot menu using MSCONFIG and delete the partition.
