Windows 10: I lost the startup blue screen which shows which drive I want to boot

    I lost the startup blue screen which shows which drive I want to boot


    @essenbe: I finally got the opportunity to perform a clean install!!! I recently used EasyBCD 2.3 to change the order in which I prioritize which OS I want to default to in a dual-boot setup. The screen used to be a light blue with large rectangles (typical Windows 10) which showed the different drives I could boot from (if I chose to). Now that I used EasyBCD, the screen went back to the old black one with white lettering (like in Windows 7). Is there any way I can get the blue screen back again? Thank you.

    Nisko, sorry I don't use EasyBCD but you may have some luck looking in the "Edit Boot Menu" option or the Advanced options.

    Thanks! Is that what Metro Boot Loader is? Or does it do something else too?

    You can also type
    Code:
    bcdedit /set {current} bootmenupolicy standard
    in admin command prompt.
