Windows 10: Delete Boot Info
Delete Boot Info
I have upgradede my PC
installed win10 onto a new HDD
i just connected up the 2 spare HDD's in me case, but 1 must have had a copy of win 10 in it.
after booting up for the first time, it asked me for a password, which it said was wrong
i was able to click into my account hotmail email log in to win 10 and log in with the correct password.
now, with all the other drives disconnected, i am still as getting the wrong password error, but i see on the bottom left of my screen i have 2 options to log in.
if i pick the one with my hotmail email addy i can log in ok.
is there a way to delete this other boot info?
I think downloading and installing EasyBCD will help; however, let somebody who is well-versed in EasyBCD usage guide you! Me? I'n still learning as a beginner this EasyBCD.
The OP is confusing multiple users with dual booting. Notice bjproc doesn't want to remove a boot menu entry, he (she?) wants to remove a username entry:
Press Win key + R to open a run dialog box. Run netplwiz
How many users are shown in the netplwiz window?
well, things didn't go to plan, i've used EasyBcd before, backing up etc, well, this muppet deleted in a wee bit of haste!
tried repairing and using the command pronmt, bootrec /repairbcd etc
just wiped the drive and starting again, it was only installed a few days ago so it wasn't really set up as the way i would use it.
i'll just have to pull the 2 spare drives and connect through a caddy to see the right storage drive then wipe the drive with the OS
i'm a he
i'm sure it picked up one of the spare drives that had a preview of 10 on it, that i disconnected last year and forgot it was on
hense it was picking up a dual boot, once disconnected, it still asked me what account i wanted to load/boot from
If it asks which OPERATING SYSTEM you want to boot from, then it is dual booting (for example the choices might be Windows 10 and Windows 10 Preview). If it is asking which USER ACCOUNT you want to log in with, then the computer has completed booting and the operating system is already loaded.
In Windows 8.1 there was an option to delete personal info from live tiles, this was also possible on previous Windows 10 builds but I can't find it. This was useful for when inevitably something breaks on the start screen and we could 'refresh' all...

Hi there. I had been dual-booting between win 7 and win 10. That part was working fine, but I was unhappy wth my win 10 installation. So I erased the partition and reinstalled it. First sign of trouble: It didn't detect my win 7 installation. But it...
