    I know that, i know that completely. It's a bug with msconfig. You have to play around with it to get to boot to diagnostic and normal.

    This topic is confusing. If you select normal mode and don't make any changes, then it should stay in normal mode. To me, if it doesn't stay in normal mode, that indicates a problem somewhere.

    Disable fastboot, hibernation and try again.

    I have several services and start up items disabled and it still runs in "normal' start up.

    Ever noticed how you changed settings in registry getting ignored upon next reboot etc. ? Bcdedit changes you make are getting ignored too ? Etc., Etc.
    Heck, even some bios settings are royally ignored too at boot time.....

    Stored to disk settings in fastboot and so on is what's causing that. Which is why you should only enable these features once you are satisfied with whatever settings you've picked.
    Can't have it both ways. Cake, eating..... I know, I am a royal PITA.

    If I make changes, I also delete the prefetch directory files so they don't conflict.

    Fastboot caused me no end of problems like this, it really shouldn't be the default. It's on my list of things to disable on new installs.

    The way i fixed this is just by going into Safemode and selecting the mode you want to boot from, selective, normal or diagonstic. That helped me. When i had this issue before on W7 i solved it by switching modes everytime i booted.

    That's normal if you have third party drivers installed. Nothing to worry about.

    Off topic

    Thanks by the way. Anyhow I was wondering if it would be a good idea to download the new Windows 10 Creators update now or wait till the bugs are worked out of it?

    Take the usual precautions and go for it.
    As from update .250 it's pretty good really.
