    wrong drive letter in msconfig / boot in dual boot system


    wrong drive letter in msconfig / boot in dual boot system [​IMG]
    Hi guys
    in my desktop I have two hard disks ( disk 0 and disk 1 ) . Disk 1 is a clone of disk 0 created by Macrium Reflect
    Disk 0 : ( C: ) windows 10 pro , upgrade from windows 7 , ( E: ) windows 8.1 pro , ( G: ) Storage partition
    Disk 1 : clone of disk 0
    problem description : I see in msconfig / boot a wrong listing
    windows 10 ( C:\WINDOWS) : Current OS ; Default OS
    windows 8.1 pro ( H:\WINDOWS ) instead of ( E:\WINDOWS )
    nevertheless the dual booting works fine as well as the shift between the disks via BIOS.
    The question is , could I fix the situation using the EasyBCD of Neosmart Technologies to edit the bootloader ?
    I see can change drive letter H: to E: and save the change , am I right or wrong ?
    or any other way
    any help appreciated , thanks .

    :)

    Windows 10 displays wrong boot system in msconfig! Problem?

    Hi,

    I created a new user account and made it admin also. Ran msconfig and it comes out the same "Windows 7(C:\Windows):Current OS;Default OS".

    I included my disk management setup. Does this look normal?

    I have another computer (identical hardware) which is setup the same way.

    msconfig shows "Windows 10(C:\Windows):Current OS;Default OS"

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    c drive is a solid state drive

    d drive is cdrom

    e drive is harddrive documents, video, pictures and downloads directories are redirected here

    f drive is a usb removable used for office backup files (removed at time of upgrade)

    Anymore ideas?

    Thank You
