    Dual Boot Option Missing


    It was there - options for booting into Win7 or Technical Preview. The 'time to display....' is set at 30 seconds but only Win7 is showing. Any thoughts appreciated - regards.

    Originally Win10 was/is installed on a separate partition on the HD. The partition was named Drive X and I can view all the files for the install on that partition via file manager when in Win7. Bootmgr on Drive C (which also contains the Win7 system) was last modified on the 4th November probably by or I assume by the Win10 installation. I'm wondering if any of the Win7 updates since then has removed the option to boot to Win10.

    Okay - all sorted. Reporting back in case anyone else has the same problem. Used EasyBCD and added the entry Win10 and the drive location. Hey presto - suddenly started working again.
