    Problems with boot menu, how to add and remove items?


    Hi, I have only win10 installed, and one system drive.
    By accident I boot from win8 dvd, and now win8 appears in boot menu.
    I tried to remove it in msconfig, deleted and rebooted, but it reappears.

    Also I tried to add safemode options to boot menu, I followed tutorial and used command prompt and bcdedit,
    safemode option appears in boot menu but it doesnt work, it only reset my machine and boot to win10, it doesnt go to safemode. This is how bootmenu look, but only win10 works.

  3. SICK WINDOWS 10 PC Help me with it & now its replacement?

    I guess I should have searched on how to remove the Macrium boot menu item that I'd added. I found it easily at

    http://forum.macrium.com/Topic29.aspx


    It says "In any case, to remove that boot menu option, run Reflect in your normal Windows environment and select
    Other Tasks -> Add Recovery Boot Menu Option ... from the Macrium Reflect's top menu bar. From the pop-up dialog box, select "No Menu" which I see as the top thing in that 2nd image that I showed you in my last Reply.

    Download: Visual BCD . Install and run it, if you get an error popup, just ignore it. Expand the "Loaders" branch on the left pane. click on an item you want to delete then click on Delete button. See screenshot
    NOTE: Yours will show 4 entries: Windows 10, Windows 8 etc...

    Thanks, it worked, I deleted obsolete items from that screenshot.

    It also shows this items, vista, win7,
    they dont appear in boot menu when i rebooted,
    I guess it is safe to delete them?
    Are they affecting the speed of windows?

    Also, how to safely add windows10-safemode item in menu?
    VisualBcd offer me to add vista/7, xp, linux item, not win10.

    Yes, it is safe to delete the orphan entries (Win 7 & Vista)
    IMHO. It is better if you just enable F8 function key so you don't have to select which one to boot from. Just like in Windows 7.
    See screenshot.
    One single command to enable F8: bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy
    To disable F8: bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard
