  1. Multiple copies of Windows 10 in MSCONFIG Boot tab


    For as long as I can remember the General tab in MSCONFIG always had the Selective Startup option checked with the Use original boot configuration not checked as follows.

    When I check the Use original boot configuration option the default switches to Normal startup as shown below.

    I then go to the boot tab and what I see is shown below.

    If I apply these settings and reboot I crap out immediately with boot failures. The only way to fix things is to restore a disk image that I took before I started my quest to oblivion.

    The reason I am doing this was to get back to normal startup mode. I've read that Selective startup is not an issue and it has been working fine for quite a long time. I'm just curious as to what is screwing up the boot process? I suppose the three Windows no longer exist. Delete is grayed out in MSCONFIG but I can delete them with another program. I deleted the last 2 entries thinking the first one was good. Got the same boot error when I left them there.

    :)

    No listing under MSConfig Boot tab / not sure what to do


    I recently upgraded my SSD from a 500 GB drive to a 1 TB drive. I cloned the drive with Arocnis True Image 2016. It seemed to work, but then it wouldn't boot up. I followed some instructions I found on another forum about how to repair the bcd (booting up using the Windows 10 USB stick and going into the command prompt and running several commands), and that worked. The computer now boots up. However, I have now noticed that there is no listing under the MSConfig boot tab. Also, I don't know if System Restore is working - under C:, it says (Missing). See attached screenshots. I am not sure what to do now. I need to boot into Safe Mode, but I can't select Safe Mode in MSConfig because there is nothing listed under the Boot tab. It seems likely that whatever I did at the command prompt has messed things up. Anyone have any idea how I would fix this?
