    You're advice would be equally incorrect, my friend. X:\Windows is not a valid option for the bcdedit command.
    @NavyLCDR
    Oh man. Read the answer carefully before challenge. X just represents a drive such as E:, F: etc... not the X from booting the recovery.

    Hi,

    From an elevetated prompt type the following command to get back a GUI boot menu:

    bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard

    It doesn't matter what drive letter you put in there, @topgundcp. It still is not a valid option of bcdedit to just put a foldername after the command:
    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit C:\Windows
    The specified command line is not valid.
    Run "bcdedit /?" for command line assistance.
    
    C:\Windows\system32>
    You are confusing the command bcdedit with bcdboot - it is a valid option of bcdboot to put a folder name pointing to a Windows folder of bcdboot. But not bcdedit.

    Nothing has worked so far. Thanks though.

    Hi,

    Can you post a screenshot of your bcdstore ? Open an elevated command prompt and type bcdedit then printscreen and save it in MSPaint as a png image.
    Upload it here so others can have a look at it.
    That is assuming the problem is you getting a textual (legacy) bootmenu and not a graphical one as you posted an image of.

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting that. Unfortunately I can not see anything wrong with it.
    Strange how it does not load the GUI bootmenu.

    @NavyLCDR
    OK. That's correct. I meant bcdboot. That was a typo on my part, of course no such option for bcdedit.

    However, boot into Windows 7 and use:
    From admin command: bcdboot X:\Windows should fix the problem (X is any letter assigned to Windows 10)

    Thats the thing, it does load, just not visually.

    By any chance did you change the timeout=0 ?
