    Windows dual boot menu doesn't show up


    Hi! I just installed the latest build, but for some reason, when I turn my PC on, I see the usual BIOS thing, then it's pitch black. I know the boot menu is still there, but nothing on the screen. Is there any way to fix this?

    Edit: I can access Windows (the boot menu does it's job, but I see nothing on the screen, so I need to go blind to choose between Win 8.1 and 10)

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,
    Sounds like your video card driver is not being recognized to me ?
    If you fill in your system spec's it might help others figure out what's going on :/
    Are you using onboard graphic's or do you have a video card ?
    Cheers.

    I got an AMD Radeon 6670. But once it was showing on the screen. Edit: I boot with the Win 10 DVD then switch Windows choices priority and I've set the time to 5 seconds. For unknown reason then everything was back to normal... I guess I can mark it as "solved"

    When I installed Win10 it took a bit before the drivers for my video card were updated and the graphics cleared up.

    I would suggest using 10 sec instead of 5 sec. At times that 5 sec difference is helpful.
