    Just make sure it's in Msconfig and set like on picture, make sure you click on Apply and OK. Reboot and you should see it in boot menu. In EasyBCD you can move it up and down or set as default.

    All the boot options are showing in MSConfig, but ONLY when I select normal startup....EasyBCD doesn’t show them at all, assume because I have selective startup selected ....

    You need just safe mode Under BOOT tab (not GENERAL). Selective startup is always shown when anything is changed. Ignore that part.

    All of that hails from XP long time ago.

    Ok will set that and see what happens......does that explain why I can’t choose normal startup, in the General tab ? Without normal startup I assume I won’t see my boot options.....

    You'll see all the options if you do it like that.

    Also does the boot setting need to be in normal to see the boot options, mine is in selective and i dont see them at startup

    Thanks
    Hello mate,

    Whenever you make any changes to the boot settings for the first time, msconfig will always show with Selective startup selected instead of Normal afterwards.

    Basically, when everything is checked under "Selective startup", it is the same as having "Normal" selected.

    Thank you, so why would it be that if I select normal startup, the next reboot gives me the blue screen ?, because it’s been restarted several times ok, leaving it as selective.....thanks

    Normally you would get a BSOD screen after the system failed 3 times in a row to boot up correctly.

    Ok did as you suggested and got the blue screen again.....had to restore from my MR backup image.....every time I change Anything within these options I get the blue screen the following reboot, all I did was select SAFE under the boot tab as you suggested......will try some commands as below to see if that fixes it, would try an in place
    repair upgrade, but last time I had all sorts of issues with Windows not activating..... Apparently if I use an iso from build 1703 ( which I have created ) Bootrec doesn’t produce the “Access denied” message......Am I going in the right direction ?

    bootrec /rebuildbcd
    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /scanos


    Chkdsk c: /f
    SFC /scannow




    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


    Put boot disk online
    Diskpart
    List disk
    Select disk ?
    Online disk
    Exit


    cd x:\sources\recovery
    StartRep.exe
