    How to change the boot UI back to modern


    I installed windows 7 as a dual boot with windows 10 (as I was having some compatibility problems with some programs) but now the boot UI has gone back to the old black text based UI.

    I was just wondering is there a way to get the modern blue boot UI back?

    Thanks

    Can't remember if this works but you can try it:
    While on W10 press and hold Shift while clicking Restart, then change defaults to W10 in that UI.

    Boot up Windows 10. Open Admin Command Prompt and type:
    bcdboot %windir%
