    Windows 10 Boot Selector, how do I get ride of it?


    When I boot up my computer, I get the boot selector and I had a Windows 10 and 8.1 dual boot, the catch is I removed the hard drive that I installed Windows 8.1 on and the boot selector still comes up before the OS loads. I would like to remove this since I have removed the hard drive and because it is getting annoying. Any help is appreciated.

    Click on start type msconfig, select System Configuration and select the boot tab

    You should see a list of your boot options - select the one for 8.1 and Delete

    You may also have to toggle the Make all Boot settings permanent option - On
