Windows 10: TRI boot with new build 9860 Solved

    TRI boot with new build 9860


    Hello all,
    on my system i have 1 HDD with duel boot WIN 7 and WIn 8.1
    when i installed win 10 TP i istalled it on a second laptop drive i had hanging around and managed to prefabricate a fit into my Pc.
    all i had to do was enter the BIOS at switch on and select witch drive to boot from.

    After reinstalling a clean install of the new BUILD 9860, At switch on i am now offered a tri boot selection of all O/S.
    great, however a re-start fom any O/S will boot from the drive selected in the bios order.

    I am sure it did not offer this with the last Build i might be wrong as i left the last win 10 build on most of the time while getting used to it and collecting updates.
    Is this a new feature or something i missed in the excitment.

    hope this may be usfull as i noticed in someware in the forum several people wishing to have this option.

    best regards Topper.

    The Boot Timeout may have been reset to '0', I had it happen a couple times.

    you could be right, i have just checked that in startup and recovery all o/S listed and set to 30secs delay as normall .strange but i am happy not having to change bios to switch.

    thanks all the same
