Windows 10: Need Help Changing Boot Manager Screen

    Need Help Changing Boot Manager Screen


    Hi All,
    I recently rebuilt my PC and installed Windows 10. I then decided I wanted to have Windows 7 available just in case. I partitioned my primary HD and installed Windows 7. In other words, I installed Windows 7 AFTER Windows 10 for a dual-boot system. I was surprised to see the Windows 7 Boot Manager screen appear instead of the Windows 10 Boot Manager. I guess I did this backwards as it appears installing Windows 10 AFTER Windows 7 is more common.

    Is there a way to edit/change/modify the boot manager to use the Windows 10 screen instead of the Windows 7 screen?

    Thanks for any help!

    I do believe if you boot into Windows 10, and then set it as the default, you will get the Windows 10 dual boot menu.

    Hi alphanumeric,
    Thanks for the reply! I tried that last night and nothing changed.

    Ok, I haven't done a dual boot setup in a dogs age. I have seen similar posts to yours though and thought that was the answer. Maybe it was Windows 8 and 7?

    Run this from an admin command prompt

    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu False

    I thought it was either one of these in a CP Admin and a reboot:

    To enable the graphical boot menu:

    bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard

    To disable the graphical boot menu:

    bcdedit /set “{current}” bootmenupolicy legacy

    I think either works

    Hi cereberus, Edwin,
    Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, the command processed successfully but the boot manager screen did not change.

    I ran it first in Windows 10 and nothing changed. I switched over to Windows 7 and ran it there but the command wouldn't process. The error was something to do with it not being recognized properly.

    Oh, well; I'll keep looking for a remedy.

    Make sure you do it from within Windows 10 and Windows 10 is your default.

    Command Prompt (admin) < I would think, if you didn't already.
