    BCDEDIT Two SSD Drives both with Windows 10


    Hi there
    I have two SSD's both with Windows 10 operating system
    Is it possible to use BCDEDIT to show in the boot manager

    First Windows 10
    Second Windows 10

    Currently it shows
    Windows 10 on volume 6
    Windows 10 on volume 3

    Have tried BCDEDIT /Set {current} description "First Windows 10"
    I says that I have completed the task but nothing changes

    Question: Is BCDEDIT used only when there are two operating systems on ONE disk or can it be configured to do what I want?

    Thank you in advance

    That should be the way to do it. Without seeing the results of bcdedit by itself, hard to determine what might be wrong.

    Easybcd is a great tool for doing this.

    Can you type bcdedit /v in the command prompt and put the output here?

    The way it is supposed to work:

    Code:
