    Metro Bootloader


    I just did a dual boot with windows 10 and windows 7 and all I get is the black and white bootloader. Before I partitioned my drive and installed windows 7 I had the Metro bootloader with my windows 10 and Macrium Reflect but after installing windows 7 on the new partition all I get is the black and white version. I've tried EasyBCD and also used the line that you use in the command prompt and it's still black and white. Windows 10 is the default system. Could really use some advice.

    Which OS is set as the default to boot. It should be Windows 10, then you should see the Metro boot menu.

    I assume you tried this command
    Code:
    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} displaybootmenu False

    When I see the word ASSUME, I always remember advice I was give as a trainee graduate engineer.

    Never ASSUME anything. If you get it wrong it can make an ASS of U and ME.

    So true - LOL.

    Another easy solution if @Kyhi's command fails (always works for me, and he gave me this tip several years ago), you could install easybcd, and tick "metro bootloader" option.

    The default system is Windows 10. Kyhi in my research on line I didn't see that code, so what will that code do? I know just enough about computers to be dangerous. I tried Easy Bcd and it didn't work.

    When you are booted into Windows 10, run the following command in a Command Prompt (Admin):

    bcdboot C:\Windows /addlast /d

    Thank you for that code cause that did the trick, it's loading in Metro. Thanks to all the rest for your help. Everyone have a Great Day.

    /addlast Specifies that the windows boot manager firmware entry
    should be added last. The default behavior is to add it
    first.
    Seems this made the difference then????
