    Boot Select Screen?


    Hi

    I've got Windows 10 all installed and running in a dual boot setup with Windows 8, no problems so far.

    But I'd like to have a boot select screen when I turn on my computer as I did when I was dual booting Windows 7 and 8.

    I can boot to Widows 8 by hitting F8 and selecting the correct hard drive to boot to, (it only lists the drives not the OS or partition names) but otherwise it just boots into Windows 10 without asking.

    Anyone know how to set this up?

    Hi Mike,
    In your sysconfig/boot tab, what does the 'Timeout' read?

    Try using EasyBCD 2.2 in Win 8 to add Windows 10 to boot.

    How do I get to msconfig, or sysconfig there isn't a run window?

    When I search for either in System Setting I don't get anything.

    I'll look at EasyBCD too.

    If you press Win + R do you get the run screen?

    You can also type "msconfig", "run" to get those.

    If you do a search for msconfig it should pull it back in the search...

    OK, Win key R did it.

    This is what my boot tab looks like...
