    Choice Between Win 7 & 10 at Startup


    I'm getting a screen when I start the PC asking me to choose between Windows 7 and Windows 10 or set/change defaults. I'm sure this wasn't here when I first upgraded...am I meant to be getting this?

    Do you still have both Windows 7 and Windows 10 installed?

    Not that I know of. I was dual booting Linux and 7, then upgraded to 10. I had a storage partition and a swap partition in weird places that were preventing me from merging a few back together, so I downloaded the Win10 disc and reinstalled after deleting all the partitions. I thought it was a fresh install.

    If I remember correctly, it might have started appearing the first time I logged back in with my email address rather than a local account. I was wondering if it's got something to do with data on Microsoft's servers about my installation? Dunno...

    Well, you can use EasyBCD to delete the extra boot menu item, if it is coming from the BCD:
    EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies

    scroll down to the free section, click register then
    You don't even have to register on the next screen, just click the Download button.

    The View Settings screen of EasyBCD (Default when it opens) will tell you what all the boot menu items are pointing to. The edit boot menu button will let you highlight specific entries and delete them. You can also change the timeout there. Don't forget to click the save settings button before exiting.
