    On Win 10 upgrade from Win 7 on a dual boot system......and because I was still at the Win 7 dual boot selection format.....
    I entered "bcdboot %windir%" at an elevated admin command prompt (within Win 10), and it showed boot files successfully created...
    However, when I rebooted (restarted), I still had the Win 7 boot selection, and the only thing "bcdboot %windir%" did, was change my local sign in to my MS sign in in Win 10....?
    I tried this twice, with the same result.....
    However, on another system this worked as described.....
    Any suggestions/clues....?
    No errors reported when doing "sfc /scannow" on this particular system.....
    Thanks for any input on this....

    If I change the default boot OS to win 10 within windows 10, using the path I described in the second post, the w10 Gui is restored.

    Yes this also worked on another system that I upgraded from Win 7 Pro.....64
    But on this particular system it does not.....
    I may do a upgrade to Win 10 again using a USB Boot-able I have prepared to see if that straightens this out....
    And thanks for your reply.....as this is a complete mystery to me, specific to this machine........

    OK, so I did a USB upgrade to see if I could get the Win 10 Gui to work......No go......Still the Win 7 Text boot menu....
    Not completely sure, but II think I remember using easyBCD to edit my time to boot....and that's when I lost the Win 10 GUI.....
    Strange as I used easyBCD on another system which then put me in a Win 7 text boot, and on that system, I was able to get the Win 10 GUI back by using the this threads instructions....
    Not sure why I am complaining, as the system does not do a restart to boot into other OS (dual boot), where as in the Win 10 GUI boot, it does when I choose the other OS...Additionally, I have ready access to the F8 key (Safe Start) during the Win 7 text boot....
    As I am a bit OCD, I may just do a Clean Install on this one system to see what happens with that.....
