Windows 10: dual boot - boot loader not always loaded Solved

    dual boot - boot loader not always loaded


    I got a problem with my Windows 10 / Windows 7 dual boot system.

    The boot loader does not come up every time. It depends on what I did before.
    Shut down Windows 10 -> boot loader does not show up on next boot and Windows 10 boots up.
    Reboot Windows 10 -> boot loader shows up and I can choose which OS to start.
    Shut down Windows 7 -> boot loader shows up and I can choose which OS to start.
    Reboot Windows 7 -> boot loader shows up and I can choose which OS to start.

    Of course I want the boot loader to show up every time.

    What I did:
    Windows 10 was preinstalled. Then I reduced the partition size of Windows 10 and created another primary partition for Windows 7. Windows 7 was then installed in this new partition.

    Does anyone know what causes this behavior?

    Thanks in advance
