    Dual boot no option menu


    I'm currently running ver 14393 (32) and tried installing 14986 (insider) on a partition. The install went ok but the installed version had some problems: repeated BSODs and really slow response. The hard part was getting back to my working version. I thought there was a boot menu to select which installation to boot to but none appeared. I finally booted from the install disk and found the boot choices there. What can I do to fix this problem?

  2. How do I restore dual boot capability after Windows 10 clean install removed it

    My computer was dual-boot with Windows 7 boot partitions on two separate drives. After upgrading to Windows 10, the dual boot provision worked fine. However after a clean install of Windows 10, dual-boot capability is no longer available. The boot partition
    for the remaining Windows 7 syBistem is intact. Only the dual boot option is gone.

    I tried the changing the default operating system under System Properties/Advanced/Startup and Recovery, but the only choice is Windows 10. Windows 7 isn't a option. I'm guessing that the clean Windows 10 install wiped out access to the dual-boot menu.

    Thanks.

    Bill

    System must start twice to run

    Hi,

    What are the options it gives with the Dual Boot window ?

    There is a setting in System Configuration (msconfig) BOOT Tab, where you can modify the Boot menu at startup...

    Dual boot no option menu

    Add an entry to the boot menu using bcdboot.exe.

    Open an admin cmd and type:

    bcdboot 14393_partition_letter:\Windows

    e.g.

    bcdboot d:\windows

    (then press enter)

    @tcebob :
    Could you get in to the new version?

    The boot timeout could have faulted to 0, you may be able to change that by holding Shift while clicking Restart to access boot options.

    To clarify: I could only boot to the new version. I found a program EasyBCD NeoSmart Technologies that makes bcdboot a bit easier. It's really confusing to have 2 operating systems named "Windows 10" but I managed to sort it out and renamed one to "Insider." Now that I know about shift/restart I think I'll opt out of the automatic menu.

    Many thanks!
