    Quickly boot between OS's


    Friends,


    If you're dual booting like I am between your current OS and Windows 10 here is a trick I use to quickly go back and forth. I have a shortcut in Windows 8.1 to take me to Windows 10 and a shortcut on Windows 10 to take me to Windows 8.1. Here is what you need to do.

    In your current OS

    1. create a batch file as follows:
    TITLE BOOT TO WINDOWS 10
    bcdedit /default {identifier}
    bcdedit /timeout 0
    shutdown /r /t 0

    --Run BCDEdit to find the identifier for Windows 10 to insert above


    --Setting the timeout to 0 will skip the Boot Menu screen, leave that line out if you want


    2. Create a shortcut to that batch file and in 'Properties' set 'Run minimized' and set Advanced 'Run as administrator'

    Rename the shortcut anything you want. Mine is 'Boot to Windows 10' in Windows 8.1 and 'Boot to Windows 8.1' in Windows 10

    In Windows 10 repeat the steps 1 and 2 above inserting the {identifier} for your current OS

    Just thought I'd pass this along.




    :)

    Pressing F9 worked for me. It seems windows is between OSs - doesn't have the boot record for the previous OS and cannot find the new boot record. F9 booted back in to windows, completed the update and all is well after that.
