    Dual Booting with Windows 8.1


    The procedure below will allow you to boot Windows separately or in dual boot configuration.
    Here's what I recommend to do:
    1. Disconnect the drive containing Windows 8.1
    2. Install Windows 10 with one drive connected.
    3. After step 2, reconnect the drive containing Windows 8.1
    4. Boot up Windows 8.1. Open disk management and take a note of the drive letter of Windows 10 OS.
      NOTE: if you boot up Windows 10, then take a note of Windows 8.1 drive letter
    5. Open Admin command prompt and type: bcdboot X:\windows where X: is the drive letter of Windows 10 (Windows 8.1 if you boot from Windows 10 in step 4)
    6. Reboot the PC. You should have a dual boot screen.

    NOTE: To break off the dual boot setting, Win+R->msconfig->boot and delete the none default entry on the list.

    Windows Update 1809 dual boot now corrupt

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that you are unable to do a dual boot after an update. To narrow down the cause we will require a few more information from you. Please reply to the following details:

    • Which operating system was installed first?
    • Do you see any error message when you try to boot to Linux?
    • Are you able to see the Linux OS files in the partition?

    You can check for the boot timeout option whether the time to boot to the default OS is changed to 0 seconds. To check that, please follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Press and hold Windows + R key on the keyboard.
    2. Type msconfig and click on OK.
    3. Click on Boot tab.
    4. Under timeout if you see time as 0 seconds then, change the time to at least 10 seconds.
    5. Alternatively, you can check if Linux is listed or not.

    Also, I suggest you to post a screenshot of Disk management with all the partitions.

    Note: Make sure you don’t capture any personal information while taking screenshot.

    Hope it helps.

    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.
