  1. Mistakenly deleted Windows 10 from boot menu


    Hello everyone,

    I was trying to install windows 7 in my Laptop without a usb or CD. With disk image file.

    I tried to boot it by easyBCD but I mistakenly deleted windows 10 from boot menu and I can neither boot from windows 7(some file problem) nor Windows 10.

    Can anyone help me resolve the issue.

    :)

  2. No startup boot menu

    Hello Kimoefat,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    As an initial recommendation, I would suggest you to access the System configuration utility and check if the Operating System installation path for Ubuntu exists. To do so, follow the below steps.

    • Type msconfig in the search bar and select System Configuration from the search results.
    • Select the boot tab in the System configuration console to check if the installation path for Ubuntu exists.
    If it exists, next logical step is to check if the boot menu time out has been set to 0, which results in Boot menu not showing up.

    The boot menu time-out determines how long the boot menu is displayed before the default boot entry is loaded. It is calibrated in seconds. To change the boot menu time-out, use the Bootcfg
    /timeout switch. Valid values are from 0 through 999. You cannot use Bootcfg to set an indefinite time-out.

    You can run the following Run command line to set the boot menu time-out accordingly. To do so, follow the below steps.


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt

    • Type in the following command: bootcfg /timeout 10

      timeout 10
      will set the time frame to 10 seconds
    However, if the Boot path for Ubuntu does not exist in the boot menu of System Configuration utility, I would suggest you to check if the Ubuntu is overridden by the Windows installation or if the Ubuntu installation files are corrupted.

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further information, feel free to write to us and we would be happy to help you.

    Thank You.

    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?

    Boot up selections, how to delete menu

    This is your problem (but says Windows 7 -- this image is from Google anyway)

    And you don't want to see this menu again, right?

    if so there's two ways.

    One is to hide the Window, but it will remain hidden even if you install another OS:

    Right Click "My Computer" > Properties > Advanced System Settings > Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Settings > Uncheck the "Time to Display list of Operating Systems", and click OK.

    The other solution is to remove the old entry from the BootMenu:

    Download and Install EasyBCD Beta 64 with Win7 Support.

    Run EasyBCD > Add/Remove Entries > Manage Existing Entries > Remove the ones you don't want > Click Save.

    That's it.
